There’s no one around our office who is busier than Colin these days. We are already knee deep into our trips season and going strong because of all the work Colin puts in all year round. Whether its booking flights, wrenching on bikes, leading a group of young people across the badlands of Alberta or playing his harmonica while he rides, Colin is an inspiration to us all. We are so privileged to have him on our team.
