Trail Grams: I Love, Live and Breathe Mountain Bikes and Mountain Biking


Hi there! My name is Cullen Perkey. I am 15 years old and live in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I love, live and breathe mountain bikes and mountain biking. I’ve been reading your magazine for three years and have spent hours upon hours every month poring over the awesome bikes and epic feature stories in each new issue. The “NICA Team of the Month” article has become one of my favorite parts of the magazine. Last year I took an active role in helping recruit racers for a race team through my local bike shop, Wheels in Motion. It was a small team but a huge success. We only had eight racers, but a majority of them were on the podium regularly. It’s the 2019 pre-season now, and our team has almost doubled in racers and coaches. It has been my dream to see myself and my buddies in your magazine—long before I began racing and the NICA team articles began being published. It would be a dream come true to get to see my team in one of the coolest mountain bike magazines in the world.

Thank you, and happy trails!
