As a youngster growing up in Wisconsin I developed a passion for biking up and down the bluffs of the Mississippi River valley. However, while going to the University of Stevens Point, my passion faded due to the lack of anything that resembled a hill. As soon as I graduated in 2002, I took a job with the Forest Service and moved to the small mountain town of Quincy, CA. A good friend told me about Downieville and how incredible he heard the trails were supposed to be, so we dusted off our bikes and went to see for ourselves. With each passing mile from rocky alpine to oaky foothills, along pristine creeks and old growth trees, I instantly fell back in love with mountain biking.
Mountain biking is now fully engrained in me. I have been volunteering with the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship for several years helping with events and creating new trails. This year I have been given the opportunity to become part of the iconic Yuba Expedition bike shop. We have a great team here and I’m super stoked to be a part of it.

In more than two decades of riding all over the country, to me, Downieville is still #1. The town and surrounding region is rich with history, and multi-use trails play a crucial role in this history. The walls of old buildings, the towering Sierra Buttes and the raging rapids of the Yuba River all speak to me, telling stories of a place and time long forgotten in this modern world. For a guy like me who believes he was born a century too late, coming to Downieville is like stepping through a portal in time. A time where life was tougher yet simpler, and where an indomitable pioneer spirit was essential for survival.
