ABOUT ME

I love mountain biking!

I first discovered mountain biking in 2014 and have been hooked ever since. My love of mountain biking has expanded to sharing my passion with others through coaching. I am a BICP Level I certified coach and I look forward to advancing my certification in the future. I have the most fun on my bike when I feel confident and in control. My goal as a coach is to share the joy and excitement that exists in mountain biking. I love seeing the mountain bike community growing in South Central Alaska, and I want to help riders build the skills necessary to have a safe and fun ride!

I was born and raised in Alaska and have lived in Anchorage since 1999. I love our public lands and the amazing recreational opportunities they present. I have been a career teacher for 13 years. When I'm not teaching or riding bikes, I like to splitboard, cook, work on my bikes, do volunteer trail work, and try new baking recipes.

Testimonials

Allison O
With this being my first mountain bike lesson, I did not know what to expect at all and was honestly pretty nervous at first! But the moment we began, I felt very comfortable and welcomed into Sofia's teaching style. She was so patient and motivating. I appreciated being able to ask any questions I had, no matter how silly they felt to ask! I truly felt supported and encouraged by Sofia and I am looking forward to practicing the skills we focused on and scheduling another session! I would highly recommend Sofia as a coach to anyone interested in mountain biking.
