Char has been passionate about mountain biking since 1984. She has raced professionally while based in Breckenridge, Colorado, culminating in racing on US National team at UCI World Championships in Italy. Being Education Director is an honor, and she is looking forward to helping the branches of our youth programs work towards a common goal: offering all youth in Whatcom County the opportunity to experience the joy of mountain biking, building and maintaining trails, stewardship, leadership, team building and spending more time outside. Currently, along with volunteering her time as Director of Education, she is a mountain bike instructor and coaches junior girls. She moved to Bellingham in 2006 and lives with her husband, Dan, her daughter, Rose, one dog, 2 cats, and 6 chickens.
