Meet lead rider Mathew James… professional firefighter/ EMT with a passion for all things bikes! He raced BMX as a kid out west and that awesome feeling of being on two wheels is still in his blood! You’re in good hands with Mat as he’s been riding for decades and is well versed in the Dupont & Pisgah trail systems. He knows the trails inside and out, will maximize the fun factor, and won’t steer you wrong.
Meet sweep rider Rob Tawes… Rob, a wild life expert, has spent his career investing in the outdoors. He raced BMX as a kid and hasn’t gotten out of the saddle since. Not only will Rob make sure that you are well guided and safe on the trail, he’s known for pointing out indigenous plants and animals along the way!
Meet trip organizer Christine Curtin… Chris has worked her career in the professional field of event management, marketing and communications and couldn’t be happier to blend that with her passion for the outdoors, especially cycling. Although she’s been on a bike for decades, most of those miles have been spent on the road until lately, when she discovered the trails. Her commitment to you and your experience won’t be matched!
