I hail from:
York, PA

But I am most at home:
Park City, UT

I pay my bills by:
I have been a mountain and road bike guide for 10 years now. I travel all over the US supporting and guiding week long bike trips. In the winters, I find my self ski patrolling in Utah and winter 2018/19 I plan to start backcountry ski guiding.

I never leave home without:
My Kitsbow Merino wool layers

My three favorite pieces of Kitsbow kit are:
Ventilated V2 short, my Icon of course, all my Merino Ride Tees

I love them because:
First of all, look good ride good, thats what I always say. Secondly, they are super durable, and thirdly Merino is the bees knees. Wool is warm when wet!

You see this scar? I got this when I:
Pulled a pot a boiling water on myself at age 4, my other near death experience.

The closest I ever came to dying was:
I was nearly smashed between two buses while touring on my bike in Nepal.

The closest I’ve been to complete and profound enlightenment was:
I would have to say when I backpacked for 3 months in Chile. That was the closest Ive been to nature and the simplest my life has ever been.

My favorite place to ride (that I am willing to tell you about) is:

If I ever won an Oscar, my 10-word speech would go like this:
I'd like to thank mom and dad for all those countless hours driving me to trail heads and races.

Wes started racing mountain and road bikes in central Pennsylvania at age 14. He raced in college at Lees-McRae for five years with world-class athletes which led him to a career in active travel. As a former ski patrol Field Marketer for Clif Bar, Wes is currently a photographer and guide for Western Spirit Cycling Adventures with some pretty manageable life goals: “I want to see, meet, and do as much as possible in this world.” Now in his ninth year of guiding bike tours, he has pedaled, paddled, and trekked his way through Patagonia, Nepal, Rwanda, Greenland, Iceland, Greece, Turkey, Australia, and many places in between.
