Meet Our Staff!


Tim Swift is not only a former pro roadie who rode and raced handlebar to handlebar with the likes of Steve Bauer, Frankie Andreau, Tyler Hamilton (former roommate), Lance Armstrong, and many others, but also competed as a professional inline skater for Team Rollerblade.

He finished the Leadville 100 MTB Race during the summer of 2017 in under 9 hours, and he has a belt to prove it. Tim gives back to the mtb community by being the head coach of the mountain bike club for middle and high schoolers.

The two of them did mountain bike racing together, including the Wisconsin Off-Road Series for 4 years. Mark also participated in a bycicle tour down the Pacific Coast from British Columbia to California with his daughter Monica. After 10 Birkies and 13 Fat Tire Finishes, Mark  contiues to stay active. He rides the 62-mile round trip commute from Spooner to Hayward twice per week as weather permits. Mark also enjoys camping and hiking, especially in the Porcupine Mountains in the UP.
