Home: Bellingham, WA, USA
Born and raised in Mamaroneck, New York, Will spent his formative years playing hockey and lacrosse and always enjoyed being outside and pedaling around the neighborhood. He took his first backpacking trip at age 10 to Harriman State Park and was immediately enthralled by the simple joys of camping. He attended Saint Michael’s College in Burlington, Vermont, graduating in 2013 with a degree in Environmental Studies.
That summer, Will and his friend, Nate, embarked on a self-supported cross country bicycle trip from New York to Washington State. Experiencing the different cultural and geographical cultures of the continent was empowering and he wanted to continue to connect with the world through biking.
In 2014, he rode from the Pacific Northwest to Los Cabos, Mexico, followed by Anchorage, Alaska to Bellingham, Washington in 2017. In 2019, Will pedaled the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route and the Colorado Trail. He has also logged hundreds of miles on the Appalachian Trail, trekked in Patagonia and done shorter tours in New England and the Pacific Northwest.
Will is passionate and dedicated to the power of bicycles and lives a car free lifestyle in Bellingham, Washington. He works in Special Education and can be found riding the steep loam and powder trails of Whatcom County or enjoying a strong cup of coffee and listening to the Grateful Dead.

ALSO SOME BIKES WITH MINOR PAINT TOUCH UPS AVAILABLE AT SPECIAL PRICE, CONTACT US FOR INFO *** ***Read BikegearDatabase's review on the Katahdin.*** The first generation of the Katahdin has proven itself both in races, gravel events and in bikepacking trips. For its second iteration, the Katahdin gets a makeover with progressive gravel geometry and new features to make it even more versatile. A relaxed 70deg steering angle, longer reach, 75mm bb drop and 430mm chainstays increase the wheelbase of the bike and place the rider in a stable and comfortable position. The goal is less fatigue, and more speed for long outings and / or races. The internal cables for an adjustable seat post, the fork adapted to the use of a dynamo hub, a threaded bottom bracket shell and all the mounts necessary to install bags and accessories are among the features of the Katahdin. The frame is dressed with the Hunt wheels fitted with WTB Venture 650b or 700c tires, as well as the Shimano GRX 2x11 or Rival 1x groupset, which make for a versatile and efficient bike.3,799$ – 4,249$ (CAD)
