Art – Owner, Coach and Lead Guide
Art is a man who wears many hats! He was introduced to mountain biking by his wife, co-owner Tara. 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 trails. An outspoken activist for TORCA, Art volunteers his time meeting with Forest Service officials, working on the much anticipated Mt Lemmon Comprehensive Trails Plan, or bucking fallen trees off of trails (he wields a cross cut saw like those guys in the timber sports competitions). 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. Art is a Level 2 “Air” trained PMBIA certified MTB Instructor, having coached hundreds of riders from beginner to expert.
