I started crashing bikes in my hometown of Rock Springs, Wyoming when I was about 9 or 10. My family moved to Farmington, New Mexico when I was 16. I did the teenager thing, then the young adult thing, got married and had a couple of awesome kiddos; sadly there were no bikes. In 2015 my husband and I decided to build a house out by the trails in Farmington and at the same time decided to get some bikes. We went on our first bike ride on Kinsey - Seven Sisters loop. I almost died that day, not really, just felt like I did. Long story short, fell back in love with the sport. Did a couple cross country races and a gravity enduro series. My favorite place to ride down south was defiantly Moab! Fast forward to 2019, my husband and I quit our corporate jobs in New Mexico, packed up our stuff, drove 1,168 miles up to Wenatchee and started a business. Here we are! 2022! It’s been an odd transition, but none the less, we love the area and the PNW; it’s a giant playground!
I’m thankful I was able to get on the Evergreen team. Watching the kids progress at the camps and become confident on a bike by the end of the week is THE BEST!

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.

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.
