Thanks for checking out Rocky Mountain Biking! We are a husband-wife team who love to mountain bike. We are an active family with two young sons. We want you to experience the amazing trails that Colorado has to offer, but first, we’d like to share a little of our mountain biking background with you.
Chris’ passion for mountain biking began at the age of 13 when he competed in his first mountain bike race in Georgia. He has been biking ever since and just can’t get enough miles in. As an avid mountain biker, Chris was a founding member of the largest social mountain biking group in Salt Lake City. His vision for Rocky Mountain Biking was born out of his love for sharing the sport with others, leading group rides and teaching novice and intermediate riders skills. Chris founded Rocky Mountain Biking as an adventure/touring business in Park City, Utah in 2009 and has continued and grown the company in his new home in Lakewood, Colorado. He is a NICA Certified Coach and enjoys coaching our local high school mountain biking team.
Jessica moved to Park City, Utah in 2005 from Indiana and bought her first mountain bike in 2006. She enjoyed the sport early on, but found it hard to keep up with her friends on rides due to a lack of skills so she started riding with an all women’s mountain bike group to help improve her mountain bike skills. After a couple of summers, she was asked to join the team as a guide and lead riders from beginner to advanced along the trails in Park City. Jessica is also a founding member of SLCMTB and has spent her her summers as a mentor for Little Bellas, a mountain bike organization whose goal is to help young women (and girls) realize their potential through cycling. In 2018, Jessica raced the Moab Off-Road Duathlon and finished first in her age group, 4th overall for women and 27th of 120 racers, all while raising a one-year old. Jessica is also a NICA Certified Coach and a high school mountain biking coach. She also has years of experience working in youth sports and coaching softball, basketball and volleyball.
Though we are a small team, we can meet your rental and adventure needs! Occasionally we enlist the help of other experienced mountain bikers in our community to drop-off rental bikes or lead a tour if we are unavailable. We hope you’ll choose us for your upcoming mountain bike adventure!
