Meet our Trail Director – Peter Henry
A little about myself: My passion is mountain biking. I have had mountain bikes for over 35 years. I love to learn and teach others about mountain biking and the trails. I’m one of the leaders of the Kids Shredding Singletrack (regular and Farm Team editions) program and love getting kids excited about riding bikes and confident on the trails.
I’m married and have two kids (18 and 22 years old).
Why I’m part of the club: A number of years ago, the community was at risk of losing mountain biking access to part of the Hiawatha trail system. I saw the club organize and participate in discussions that ended up securing continued trail access. I wanted to support the club as it advocated for continued riding opportunities. I have been a member ever since and have seen all of the great things that this committed group has done for cycling and for the community. As the trail director I coordinate trail maintenance and communication with landowners to ensure continued trail access.
Why I love biking: I love biking because it helps connect me to the outdoors, to others and to myself. It challenges me mentally and physically – in good ways. Mountain biking in particular connects me to the outdoors and refreshes me.
