Age: 49

Bike: Polygon Siskiu, Framed Minnesota and Specialized Hard Rock

Why I Ride:

I bike for exercise, for adventure, for the freedom of exploring my back yard of the Superior National Forest on two wheels.

Favorite Trail: Hidden Valley

The trailhead is 2.6 miles from my front door. It’s my reset button, my church, my go-to spot for mountain biking, trail running, Nordic skiing and fat biking.

Favorite spot to eat:

Drive thru coffee from Log Cabin, breakfast burrito from Sheridan Street Delicatessen or Northern Grounds, lunch at Insula or Gators, dinner and a beverage at the Boathouse Brewpub, The Frisky Otter or the Chocolate Moose.
