James comes to BCGP with over 19 years of combined coaching experience. His coaching career in cycling began in 2012 with the Cadence Cycling Foundation, where he helped foster the program in Camden, NJ. James’s career path is an interesting mix of coaching, retail management, sales, first response, mechanics, and non-profit. He has been a year-round bike commuter for over 6 years, sometimes commuting up to 24 miles one way.
When he is not coaching, you can find James on his bike just about anywhere in the Philadelphia area. In his spare time, he is a level 1 Surf and Rescue tech, a barefoot water skier, an outspoken advocate for multi-use trails, and a volunteer for the Pennsylvania Tourettes Syndrome Alliance.
