Max Wilbert

Max Wilbert

My name is Max Wilbert, and I have been a staff writer for Bikewagon Community College since 2012. I’ve been riding bikes seriously since I was in sixth grade, when I spent my life savings to buy a steel-framed touring bike -- I sized it big, and that bike is still my primary cycle after more than a decade.

I’ve been a long-time outdoor adventurer and have worked as a wilderness and adventure guide for nine years, as well as in a bike shop. Now I work as a freelance writer based in Salt Lake City, where I spend my time riding and climbing in the Wasatch Mountains, exploring redrock canyon country, cooking large portions of nutrient-dense foods, gardening and working to protect the natural world as a community organizer.

The best all-time rides I’ve done are various mountain bike trails on the rim of the Colorado River near Moab and the world-famous tour down the Pacific Coast. Physically, the most difficult ride I have ever done is likely the 100-mile stretch from the town of Bellingham, Washington, to Artist’s Point (near Mt. Baker) and back to the town of Glacier -- an elevation gain of over 5,000 feet.

Mentally, the toughest rides I’ve experienced are multiple wet, 50-mile days into strong headwinds on the Northern California coast or finally conquering the neighborhood hill -- two blocks of steepness that probably give Baldwin Street a run for it’s money.
