I've been mountain biking since: I have been riding bikes as long as I can remember, but only mountain biking since 2009.

Biggest adventure trip (biking or otherwise): Road trip to San Diego. Drove all the way down the coastal highway, camping for a week near San Clemente. We divided our days between the beach, zoo, and Sea World. When I'm not biking I also like to: go hiking, camping, canoeing, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing.
What I like most about BOMB: combining the sport of off-road biking with the love of God through nature, and through relationship with others, especially when believers share the word of God during devotions and prayer.
What I hope riders will remember after our rides: I want them to feel like they have experienced God s family, as well as His gift of nature.
