Mike Clark
Mike Clark, Bike Safety Instructor

Mike’s love of bike riding exploration started with mountain bikes while growing up in Pennsylvania. An avid mountain biker, he has explored much, but nowhere near enough, of the Pacific Northwest woods during his almost thirty years as an Oregonian. He generally prefers the quiet of dirt to the noise of asphalt. Over the last decade, Mike has also become an enthusiastic, if not fast, bike racer.
