Art is a man who wears many hats. By day he wears a suit but changes into mtb clothes the first chance he gets. He was introduced to mtbing by his wife 17 years ago and has never looked back. While Art is an enthusiast of many outdoor activities including snowboarding and motocross, mountain biking is deeply rooted as his passion. So much so, that he was one of the founding members of the Tucson Off-road Cyclists and Activists, a non-non-profit group dedicated to the maintenance and development of Tucson’s mtb trails. When he’s not acting as President of TORCA, herding kittens in his “real job”, or bucking fallen trees off of trails (he wields a cross cut saw like those guys in the timber sports competitions covered in obscure sports quarterly), his priority is riding with his favorite riding partner and best friend, his wife. Art’s passion and pride for Tucson is second only to riding mountain bikes. Art’s mission with Home Grown, as it was before Home Grown, is to share Tucson’s amazingly unique trails with anyone who wants to experience them.
