I'm from the SF Bay Area and been riding road since 1981 and mtb since 1984. I'm a High school MTB Coach and have been since 2002 with 2 teams, one of which I founded and one I took over. I founded established the local YMCA mtb program 3 years ago which now runs without me (success!). I'm a director at a local Trails advocacy group. I lead about 80 rides per year with people of all abilities.
I am currently trying to get my own love of riding back. It is a weird schism.
