The IMBA EPICS list is crowd-sourced annually via a public nomination process. The EPICS designation denotes a true backcountry riding experience. IMBA EPICS are what many mountain bikers live for and make travel plans around: immersive rides that are technically and physically challenging, beautiful to behold and worthy of celebration.

As a father I see now more than ever the value of investing in making our communities more active, green, and vibrant through creating access to open spaces and opportunities for all ages to learn, explore, and grow. I thrive on cultivating energy and creativity in a group of people, inspiring them to dream big and be the change they want to see in the world, and coaching them through finding the resources to make it happen.Meet our team
