As the Program Manager for iRide – Cycling BC’s youth initiative–Ben enjoys the challenge of creating and implementing new strategies that provide safe, fun and exciting events for introductory youth cyclists in British Columbia. Ben’s cycling passion took hold as a university student, when he came to the sport after an elite amateur alpine skiing career. During his four years at Whitman College, he helped rebuild their cycling team to reclaim the National Collegiate championship in 2009 and 2010.

Moving into the North American professional peloton in 2011, Ben raced at the largest events in North America and claimed the Canadian Criterium Championship title in 2012. Ben has worked with youth cyclists in various capacities since 2008, and continues to race provincially in support of youth development.
