Jan (they/them, Cerrillos, NM) developed a keen interest in the great outdoors at a young age, attending three wilderness trips with Outward Bound before the 10th grade. After a back injury sidelined them from road and crit racing they developed a deep appreciation for bikepacking. Their personal experiences while scouting the Pony Express route moved them so deeply that they decided to commit themselves towards helping others to experience the route. You can find them outside of Cerrillos, New Mexico when they’re not out exploring gravel roads across the country.
