Hey! My name is Jeff! I ride simply because I love to. There is nothing about cycling that I don’t like! I sometimes take part in group-rides and compete in races. I also work with other riders, teaching them how to get better on trickier, technical trails.

I’ve outlined some tips on how to choose and what to buy on my website. Once you pick out the bike for you, I’ll see on the trails!
