Like pedals on a bicycle, Ed Fischer and the staff at Camas Bike & Sport understand the importance of youth pumping fresh blood into the heart of their sport.
Mountain biking is more than just a business to them, it’s a lifestyle they love to share with friends and families. As coaches in the brand new Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance’s Washington Student Mountain Bike League, Fischer, his wife Katina, and friends Bill Waring and Dave Webb, help children discover a passion for cycling and teach them to nurture the trails they ride on.
“We want to find young and passionate students who can follow in our footsteps and become not just great riders, but stewards as well,” Fischer said. “High school students are involved in a lot of activities, and they don’t always have the time or the energy to try something new. Younger kids have so much passion, and that’s what we want to tap into.”
