Member of the Iron Horse/Freeridetours Team and a Freeridetours Guide
I imagine James rode a bike as a kid like we all do, but from what I can tell he really got into riding the same way most people get into riding, through the local bike shop. In his case that meant Red Shreds
, which is where I first met James. For those of you who don’t know anything about this shop, it is iconic and more of a epicenter for adventure than merely a shop.
Needless to say James worked at the shop when I first met him and soon joined us on a tour where he quietly destroyed every trail we rode. He is an amazingly versatile rider and is always too busy loving riding to boast about it. Well it didn’t take me long to ask him to join the Freeridetours roster and as soon as the Iron Horse Freeridetours Team was a reality, he was on it.
When I ride with James it reminds of what it was like when I first started—pure love for the sport.
