Meet Zeke – Mechanic, Sea Kayak & Mountain Bike Guide and Shop Representative

I grew up near Appleton, Wisconsin, and look for every opportunity to visit the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I have gone camping there every summer with my family for as long as I can remember, and look forward to a second season of living and working in the best part of the mid-west this summer!

I began mountain biking when I was twelve years old, and it is my main passion. I love the outdoors, and enjoy traveling, hiking, rock climbing, camping, and adventuring. I also like anything with wheels, including cars, bikes, motorcycles, and skateboards.

I am a student at Colorado Mesa University where I’m majoring in Outdoor Recreation Industry Studies. While in Colorado, I’ve secured a trip leader position for the school’s Outdoor Program, as well as a mountain bike coach for 3rd-8th grade students.
