Cycle Education Specialist
Riding and racing bikes since the age of five, and a professional mountain bike rider since 2013, Richard Drew has turned this passion into a successful career. With his brother Robert, he developed The Ride Series MTB Skills Clinics, now based in Bentonville, where their vast experience on two wheels is brought to the masses. At Thaden, Coach Drew will develop and implement a curriculum that will introduce students to the pump track and skills course, and will build community engagement programs that connect meaningfully into the Wheels Program.
Coach Drew received his bachelor degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from Arizona State University. Richard lives in Bentonville, the "land of mountain bike opportunity," with his wife Sarah and their son Dexter.
