PASSIONATE ABOUT INSPIRING OTHERS 

BORN AND RAISED ON TWO WHEELS, I HAVE EXPERIENCED MOUNTAIN BIKING FROM EVERY ANGLE POSSIBLE. WITH OVER TWENTY YEARS IN THE MOUNTAIN BIKE INDUSTRY, MY RELATIONSHIP WITH THE BIKE BEGAN WITH CHASING MY OLDER SIBLINGS AROUND AT RACES AND HANDING OUT BOTTLES IN THE FEED ZONE. WHEN THE TIME CAME, THE CHASING EVOLVED INTO JOINING MY SIBLINGS BEHIND THE TAPE COMPETING. THE FIRST PART OF MY CAREER SAW ME COMPETING AT A NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL LEVEL, DURING WHICH I WAS ABLE TO CLAIM MANY TITLES AND SOME UNIQUE AND INVALUABLE EXPERIENCE AS AN INSTRUCTOR TODAY. 

 

MIDWAY THROUGH MY CAREER, I DECIDED TO TAKE A STEP BACK FROM COMPETING. I HAD SO MUCH LOVE FOR THIS SPORT THAT GAVE ME COMMUNITY, A SENSE OF BELONGING, AS WELL AS, RAISED ME TO BE THE STRONG AND DETERMINED ATHLETE THAT I AM TODAY. BUT, TRYING TO BEAT THE CLOCK JUST WASN’T FOR ME ANYMORE.

 

THE NEXT SEASON I CHOSE A DIFFERENT PATH. I WAS OFFERED AN INSTRUCTING POSITION WITH MY LOCAL WOMEN’S MOUNTAIN BIKE CLUB AND MY PASSION FOR THE SPORT WAS IMMEDIATELY REIGNITED BY SHARING MY KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE WITH OTHERS.

RECOGNIZING THAT THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE LOOKING FOR AN ENTRY INTO THE SPORT FROM A NON COMPETITIVE ANGLE, I BECAME A CERTIFIED PROFESSIONAL MOUNTAIN BIKE INSTRUCTOR AND LAUNCHED MINII ADVENTURES MOUNTAIN BIKE EXPERIENCES AS A WAY TO BUILD COMMUNITY AND A SENSE OF BELONGING FOR OTHER RIDERS LOOKING TO GAIN AN ACTIVE AND HEALTHY OUTDOOR LIFESTYLE WITH A LOVE FOR TWO WHEELS AND THE TRAILS. 

 

PEDAL FORWARD A FEW YEARS, I TEACH FULL TIME AND AM RECOGNIZED THROUGHOUT NORTH AMERICA FOR EXPERT INSTRUCTION. MY TEACHING METHODS INCORPORATE A RELAXED AND DYNAMIC APPROACH WHILE ENCOURAGING ATHLETES TO SMILE, CURSE, AND MAKE ALL THEIR OWN SOUND EFFECTS AS THEY SHRED DOWN THE TRAIL. 

 

HAPPY TRAILS,

Charlotte (aka Minii)
