Daniel grew up on the Oregon Coast before packing up and heading to Montana. He spent 2 summers working in Glacier National Park where he met his wife Amy. While traveling they stopped in a little town called Bend, Oregon and decided that this was going to be their new home. Daniel and Amy moved to Bend in the fall of 2005 and feel lucky to live in such a beautiful place with such a great community.
Daniel started Cascade Couriers in 2007 hoping to create a business that allowed him to be outside while doing good in the community. He rides a Salsa El Mariachi MTB, Redline Conquest CX and of course the cargo bike which currently works overtime as his commuter bike.
Ben HooverRider/MC Extraodinaire
Ben moved here from Wisconsin in 2007 to be near mountains. When not riding, you might find him at Mt. Bachelor teaching folks how to ski as a certified instructor or in the backcountry doing studies for the Forest Service. In addition to biking and skiing, Ben enjoys rock climbing and mountaineering.
His two-wheeled "weapons of choice" are all "franken-bikes" He rides a Giant XTC2 converted into a single speed, a Specialized Pro 2 nicknamed Clifford the Big Red Road Bike, and he is working on his Team Cascade Couriers Redline cross bike for the fall season. His 'round town commuter ride is a 1980's Bianchi Veleco converted to fixie. He swears he was riding fixie before it was cool.
Ben is an advocate for local cycling rights and programs. He was a founding member of Bend's Community BikeShed and has served as it's Leadership Committee President. He is very proud to have been able to participate in the growth and success of Cascade Couriers and sees it as a cornerstone to the Bend cycling community.
Also, if you've ever been to a Roller Rumble, you know he makes a damn good MC.
