Started in the accounting profession and riding mountain bikes at the end of the 1980s Volunteered on the first bike patrol in Chino Hills State Park in Southern California, maintaining trails, giving directions and offering help to riders. She relocated to Southern Utah in 1993, and has been running her accounting business and recreating in the area since that time. Most of our trails did not exist in those early years here, so she has watched and participated in the evolution of mountain biking in Southern Utah. An avid mountain biker, her goal is to help maintain and expand our great trails, while enjoying them as often as possible.

Jan Gillespie is a Geologist who recently moved to Kanab after spending over 20 yrs mountain biking in California and elsewhere. Besides single track, I also like using the MTB to travel in more remote areas than a road bike can handle…especially in somewhat exotic locations like Borneo, Thailand, Montenegro, Alaska and Mexico. It’s a fabulous way to get to know other countries and lots of fun too! I’ve ridden quite a bit in Utah and hope to get more acquainted with the trails and the other MTB enthusiasts.
