Mike grew up in the Wenatchee valley with a passion for biking from an early age running around town on his BMX bike. After moving away for 10 years, he moved back to make Leavenworth his home. One of the main draws to moving back to the valley was the number of mountain biking opportunities. With a passion for hiking and mountain biking Mike joined evergreen to get involved and expand the valley trail systems. Mike is the head of the Technology committee helping to maintain our website and anything technology related.
My mt bike days began when I bought a used 1986 Schwinn High Serria as my primary means of transportation to and for collage. It all went downhill from there. My trail building days dates back the late 1970/80s when I got hired on as the first ORV Tech for the Wenatchee National Forest. I was involved with the creation and development of the Devils Gultch trail system, the Mad River and Lake Chelan 25 Mile Creek trail systems. Little did I know at that time that I'd be riding mt bikings on them decades later. The latest trail system I've worked on are CDLT Sage Hills system, Leavenworth Ski Hill system, Squilchuck State Park System, Pashastin River Front Trail and No.2 Canyon.

Hi, my name is Joel Augustine! I moved to Wenatchee in 2017, originally from the midwest. I rode park, street, dirt bmx for 8 years and traveled around doing contest and shows for a few of those years. After getting married and having two kids, I put the bmx away and started XC racing and fat biking. From there I started working in the bike industry in 2011 and started 509 Cycles in 2016. After moving to the valley I wanted to grow the bike scene and help contribute what I could. I've been teaching bike camps with Evergreen since 2018 and want to help evolve the bike community in the valley for the future generations to enjoy!
