First Name: Brian
Last Name: Hayden
Bio: I moved to Duluth in the early 1980's to pursue a graduate degree in Geology. I became infatuated with Lake Superior and the availability of outdoor recreation along its shoreline. I bought a first-generation Gary Fisher (I wish I still owned it) and rode it on Duluth's earliest "mountain bike” trails, a mix of grassy ski, snowmobile, and motocross trails. I've been riding and racing ever since. My favorite races are the MDH 100 and the DK 200. I love a long day on the bike. In 2013, at the urging of my two energetic sons, who are now Sacred Rides guides with me, I founded and continue as the head coach for Duluth's NICA-affiliated Duluth Composite Team. It's an exceptional experience to see 80 high school kids love to ride their bikes on Duluth's trails. I’m inspired by teaching them a life sport that builds a strong mind, body, and character. My Sacred Ride: anywhere along the Duluth Traverse with a panoramic view of Lake Superior. I'm a Level 3 NICA coach and PMBIA instructor.
