Jeff started riding bikes at eight when he found a stray bike at his Granny’s house and made it his own. Cutting his teeth on Bidwell Park in Chico fueled his need to go fast and left a taste for rocks and epic climbs. Jeff came late to the road biking side of life – but makes up for time not spent in the saddle by commuting 15 miles each way whenever possible.

Grooming ski trails, teaching mountain bike skills at Eagle Mountain Resort, working ten consecutive years and every position at the Sea Otter Classic, traveling the west to scope and mark course for the National Mountain Bike Racing Series, and developing the race series for the Northern California High School Race League – these are the building blocks of Jeff’s career in cycling. There was also the stint as “Chef Jeff” that many lucky mountain bikers will remember! After working with Bill and Claudia at Sharp Bicycles for years, Jeff now finds himself continuing their legacy at Stray Dog Bicycles.
