Dan began bike commuting while attending schools in the eastern and central US, which culminated in him earning a Masters in Ecology and becoming a master of the bicycle. After working in conservation for ten years domestically and internationally, he began teaching outdoor recreation. Now, ten years into his second career, Dan is convinced of the power of recreation to change lives, communities, and ecosystems.
With certifications in sea kayaking and rock climbing, his favorite ‘work’ still involves cycling. He’s been a League Cycling Instructor since 2008 and a League Cycling Coach since 2022. He loves working in the Bike East Bay education program where he coaches and manages Bike East Bay’s large group of bike education instructors, in addition to offering bike lessons to monolingual Spanish speakers in the area.
