Come ride
with me


I love cycling. A bike isn’t just for the road, or just for racing, or just a tool I use to do my job. It’s a way to see new things, meet new people, have fun with friends. Ride through forests, over mountains, by the ocean, see the sunrise, see the sunset. It’s a way to live life, to push your limits. Enjoy the adventure. Come ride with me.

GRAVEL RAID FESTIVAL

As much as we love riding the bike, we do like a good party as well. We will celebrate the Gravel Raid experience with a support program that has the good things in life. We’ll provide entertainment with live music, a DJ, storytellers at the campfire, and yes, we’ll have the marshmallows ready too. With the entertainment we’ll provide hearty food and tasty drinks.
