Laura started Bike Adventures for Kids 14 years ago when there was nothing like it on this side of the mountain. Over many summers she has witnessed kids discover the joy and freedom that riding bikes provides. Many kids return year after year until they graduate to being a counselor, find a posse of their own to ride with or both. As a former head coach of the Drake Mountain Bike Team, she has been inspired by the dedication and perseverance of high schoolers as they train and race rain or shine. She has seen young racers laughing and crying their way over muddy courses all the way to the finish line only to congratulate other competitors and then go back out there to cheer more racers on. More importantly she is encouraged by the lasting influence these programs have in building grit and character. Laura is a registered nurse, is Wilderness First Aid Certified and provides kids with a safe and positive experience. Laura believes that riding bikes should be FUN whether your child likes to SHRED or just take in the scenery!
