Dave Bennett, TrailForce Leader
My Name is Dave Bennett and I am a native born Santa Barbarian. I grew up riding BMX off and on through my 20s and transitioned to Road and Mountain bikes by the time I turned 30. After working 10 years in computer repair and 7 years in Cannabis cultivation I shifted my focus to Trails.
As a kid growing up riding BMX I was always disappointed by the lack of opportunity for bike skill progression, and my aim is to not only maintain and improve our local trail system; but also to develop opportunities for bike riders of all abilities to further develop their skills by building safe and well calculated bike features that allow riders to push their limits while having a great time.
When I’m not riding mountain bikes or working on trails I can be found riding a tandem bike with my wife, Christina, eating vegan comfort food, or hanging out at home with our house horse, dogs and cats.
