But I am most at home:
In my new home of Pisgah Forest, NC.
I pay my bills by:
Guiding & Coaching mountain biking.
I never leave home without:
A positive attitude.
My three favorite pieces of Kitsbow kit are:
Ventilated base shorts, Radiator tee, and Adjustable shorts.
I love them because:
The ventilated base shorts breath really well and provide comfort where it counts most! The Radiator tee literally dries instantly and never feels sweaty. The Adjustable shorts are very comfortable, flexible, and have all the pockets.
You see this scar? I got this when I:
Was hit by a parked car and broke my collarbone. Always look before you leap.
The closest I ever came to dying was:
I went skydiving and the parachute came out twisted, it eventually opened all the way and we landed safely in a random cow pasture about a mile from the intended landing zone.
The closest I’ve been to complete and profound enlightenment was:
When I realized that I didn't die skydiving.
My favorite place to ride (that I am willing to tell you about) is:
Goatfish, a jump trail that I built in my backyard at the bike farm.
My favorite secret spot is:
This one waterfall in Pisgah. You go past this bridge then turn left at the tree that's really tall and has a lot of branches and then climb over the rock that looks like a giant turtle and then it's a little further through the ferns and the doghobble down to the river. Ever been to that one?
If I ever won an Oscar, my 10-word speech would go like this:
Sup y'all, thanks for the votes, where the party at?
Lastly, shout out to:
All the homies who shred NC.
The scene is strong and shredders gunna shred.
Riding bicycles has been an integral part of Josh's life for as long as he can remember. His interest in riding began at an early age with a focus on dirt jumping. Finding flow, catching air, and smashing turns on challenging descents are the bullet points of his playful riding style. Some may see obstacles where others see opportunities.
A North Carolina native, Josh grew up in Cary, then moved westward to Asheville, and now Brevard. He attended Brevard College to earn a BA in Wilderness Leadership and Experiential Education with a minor in Business and Organizational Leadership. Some of the highlights were an 18-day sea kayaking expedition down 340 miles of the savanna river and a 21-day wilderness expedition featuring mountain biking, canoeing, and backpacking in western NC.
He enjoys spending time with nature in order to escape the stresses of modern life. It’s his goal to share this feeling with other people. He find the Appalachian Mountains to be an exciting place for an outdoor adventure. The forest is his playground.
