The great terrain, awesome trails, and Northwest family lifestyle brought founder and head coach, Shaums March, to Bellingham. After running a successful mountain bike coaching and guiding business in Squamish, BC, for the last 16 years, the two-time Downhill World Champion is enjoying the process of getting his kids into such an active and rewarding recreational sport.
