Peter comes to us with 15 years of experience across multiple biking disciplines. His successful racing career in cross-country, downhill, cyclocross, road, super-D, and enduro make him the perfect person to relate to your current or past biking experiences.
His coaching background includes working with teams and riders at the esteemed collegiate cycling programs of Lees-McRae College, Union College, and Brevard College. Peter has also coached younger kids with the Transylvania County Youth Cycling Team in Brevard.
Many years of bad riding habits having been painfully corrected; my coaching, guiding, and racing experience have developed an empathy for the intermediate rider. I know what it’s like to struggle with the same skills for years, and I know how incredible it is to have a breakthrough in ability.
These breakthroughs are what I work toward in my day job as a high school math teacher. In everything I do I’m constantly trying to explain skills and techniques from a variety of different perspectives in a low-fear environment. People don’t learn under fear, we learn through practice and play. So our focus will be to have fun as we learn to ride safer, faster, and playfully.
My goal with your riding is to shorten the learning curve with a combination of knowledge, observation, and skills practice. I’ve had the amazing time riding and learning with some incredible people over the years and it’s my privilege to pass some of these skills on to you.
