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.

Bio coming soon
Ryan has been on a bicycle for as long as he can remember, it being the vehicle which carried him around the farmland in southern Idaho growing up. Eschewing a car through college and several years following, the bicycle remained an important fixture in his life. Ryan joined the cycling industry in 2011 and moved to Boulder in 2013. Ryan is an active patrol person, one of our ride guides, and a familiar face at our trail building days. You never know which bike you’ll catch him on but it’ll likely be in the dirt when you do.
Brooke loves to ride, but more than that, she loves to introduce the joy of cycling to women. She is a co-leader of Black Girls Do Bike Denver and a Boulder High mountain bike coach. Her focus with BMA is ensuring we are eliminating barriers to make mountain biking more inclusive, equitable, and diverse.
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.
