With interests in bike touring, commuting, trail riding, back country exploration, camping, Rock climbing, and a plethora of other outdoor sports, heath's weekends are packed with what he calls product testing. This works out well for both heath and planet bike since he directs product development and takes every opportunity to indulge in product field testing. Heath comes to planet bike with 12 years in the bicycle industry; dabbling in everything from sales to national bicycle advocacy work, product development to working in a shop and building trail. Cycling has always been a big part of my life starting with my first bike, a 16 inch fixed wheel bike my dad retrieved from a muddy River bed, says heath. Whether it's hitting the trail, going to work, or going to the grocery store, sustainability and my impact on the environment are top priorities for me. I'm proud to be a part of planet bike where these priorities are both shared, and promoted.
