Bike and Brew
I am an adventure tour guide and operator. As the cofounder and founding president of a local mountain bike club, with over 10 years of effort, I helped develop a vast network of trails and a significant mountain bike community. I offer lessons to learn to ride or brush up on skills. I provide customized bike tours and brewery tours are stand alone or a great addition to a good morning mountain bike ride.
My first experience guiding was back in the early 80’s. The German Olympic team trained in Stowe for the Lake Placid Olympics. I became friendly with one of the trainers and he invited me to bring a group to meet with him in Badgastein, Austria. On my very first trip I met my wife Marina, who was leading a group from Sweden. Marina and I continued leading groups to Austria for several years.
Drawing on my experience as a ski instructor, I saw a need for instruction. I attended mountain bike clinics and was certified by the International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA). I have been teaching new and intermediate riders for the past few years and having great results. There’s no need to do it the hard way!
