Bruce LinOperations VP - Rock Climbing & Cycling
Bruce heard the call of the mountains when he was very young, whispering to him like memories surfacing from a previous life. He’s been in Colorado for so long now, he knows no other way to live than to ride bikes and climb rocks. He races and competes throughout the year, and spends much of his downtime nerding out on new gear. He is constantly driven to test himself physically and mentally, to become a better athlete, to learn more, and to share his passion with others. To him, life is greater with sport, and sport is always best done outside, and with good friends. He studied English at CU Boulder, receiving an MFA in Creative Writing.
