Riley, a homegrown Wisconsinite first discovered real mountain bikes when he moved to La Crosse, WI after graduating high school in Kenosha. With almost 900 feet of elevation gain, Riley was quickly drawn to downhill riding, as the hike-a-bike was fairly easy. Four years later, after moving to Steamboat Springs, CO he discovered the power of pedaling and immediately took off after high alpine riding. When not on a bike, he is often following his many other passions. Trailbuilding is what he calls “work”, traveling from all over the country including Minnesota, Colorado and Washington. But, no adventure is ever started without his camera! Photography completes the trifecta of his adventure skills with the power of visual story telling. Finding Riley may be a hard task as he is always looking for the next best trail whether its revisiting British Columbia’s luscious, loamy coast, Colorado’s dry and fast open country trails or heading south to Costa Rica for his next adventure. A favorite trail is never possible as it is always changing.
