A.J. is a relationship builder who brings divergent thinking into every organization he works with. While fully immersing himself in the communities of Colorado he has helped to launch and run a guided Bike Tour Company, connect members of his network with each other to develop collaborative initiatives, and get more people riding bikes through programs like Group Rides and Skills Clinics. He enjoys all things two wheeled and on dirt, whether that be bikepacking, trail riding, or simply exploring our public land.
Joe is relatively new to Colorado, not counting some time many years ago. After a full nearly 40 years of time in the bike business trying to sell someone a new bike, he is pretty stoked to be working to help provide quality places and riding experiences for people on all those bikes. Although when he joined the board, he had only been in Boulder for 2 years, in those 2 years he has been really active as a guide and other projects with BMA. Joe brings a lifetime of connections and leadership experience in the mountain bike world to BMA. Joe is quick to tell you that if it has 2 wheels and is ridden in the dirt, he wants one or has one. You can find Joe most days of the week, probably in a flannel shirt, at many of the backcountry riding trails in the area or at Trestle or some other bike park.
Aaron is a director and software architect with a penchant for mountain biking. He brings his leadership and technical experience to help support all the things BMA does for the local MTB community. He enjoyed taking part in several of BMA’s offerings like group rides and skills clinics before becoming a member of the Brute Squad, a ride guide, and a skills instructor.
Elizabeth has been involved in cycling groups in Boulder County for over a decade. She started mountain biking at the beginning of the pandemic and now it is her favorite recreational activity. The sport has been truly life-changing for her! As a professional nonprofit fundraiser, she hopes to use that skillset to help grow the depth and breadth of BMA. When not riding with friends, she spends her time working at an organization that supports Native American college students and she strives to be the best three-boy-mom she can be.
Kelsey is a South Boulder transplant from small town Nebraska. Extreme sports are her calling, she started racing dirt bikes at age 9 and was competitive in Muay Thai for over a decade. Now she is an avid trail rider and competitive downhill mountain biker. She is a physical therapist, and manager of Ability Physical Therapy in Longmont. During the week you can usually find her on Bitterbrush after work, and on the weekends at the downhill park in her favorite Hawaiian shirt. Her favorite way to be involved is leading rides and working with BMA volunteers.
Wendy has been an avid cyclist since her first two-wheeler at age 6. She loves all types of cycling, from touring to triathlon, mountain biking to commuting, and even a brief stint on the track. As a Colorado native, she started mountain biking in the 90’s. Wendy worked at IMBA from 2012 to 2016, where she became even more passionate about creating more and better places to ride in Boulder County.
TRAIL PROGRAMS DIRECTOR
Mike was born in Burlington, Iowa and began his passion for riding BMX bikes in the wooded hills above the Mississippi River valley in the late 70’s. He graduated to road and mountain biking in high school and then found himself building trails for the Forest Service in Idaho during college in the mid-90’s. That eventually led Mike to Colorado where he worked another summer building trails for the Forest Service before finding himself in Boulder, a burned-out roadie looking for a way back to the woods. He found what he was looking for with a position with Boulder County Parks & Open Space where he spent 2005-2020 building and maintaining trails. Mike now find himself in his dream job of building bike specific trails with his friends from BMA as we raise the bar for mountain bike trails in Boulder County and across the Front Range.
