Welcome to Trail Sage

Mountain biker and trail runner, reviewing related gear, tech and trails, with a touch of East Coast flavor.

Based in the Tri-State area, near Philadelphia PA, I’m surrounded by a variety of awesome trails. I explore everything from the fast flowy singletrack in Delaware to the punchy steep rock gardens of North New Jersey. And having such a diverse network of trails close by helps me test gear and create engaging content.

If you have any suggestions or feedback regarding any of the content I cover, feel free to shoot me a comment. Or if you have a specific question, do not hesitate to reach out. As a mountain biking and trail running content creator, I am always looking for cool gear and new places to go.
