Since returning home to Richmond, David, an exceptional education teacher at Deep Run High School, has furthered his knowledge and love for Virginia mountain bike trail systems. David attended Appalachian State University where his love for mountain biking and the outdoors was fostered by everything the Blue Ridge Mountains have to offer. David started the mountain bike program at Virginia Outside and is in charge of all things Mountain Bike related. He has logged over 700 hours of youth mountain bike instruction, is an International Mountain Bicycling Association certified instructor, and holds a Wilderness First Aid and CPR certificate.
