I’m David, originally from Atlanta, GA and now living in Charlottesville, VA. I can’t wait for the summer: biking is my preferred form of travel since you can cover so much ground, yet still take in the sights and sounds of the region where you are traveling.

Summer is my favorite season. Since I was in high school, I’ve been lucky enough to do something different each summer, from going to the World Cup in South Africa to raft guiding in Tennessee to mountaineering in Canada.

A benefit of my job as a high school teacher is that I can keep adventuring during the summer! After working at an international school in the Dominican Republic for two years, I relocated to central Virginia, where I’ve taken up kayaking and rock climbing in addition to enjoying frequent (hilly) bike rides with the beautiful Shenandoah Mountains as a backdrop.

I love teaching in the classroom, but nothing beats the experiential learning and growth that comes from going on an adventure. I can’t wait to meet you and for our super-duper biking extravaganza to begin!"
