Eric Hawkinberry began mountain biking over 20 years ago and has been riding both recreationally and competitively ever since. In recent years, he has become involved in road and gravel riding and racing as well.
Eric’s son, Sam, participated in WVICL’s inaugural 2018 season at the age of 12, and has been bitten by the cycling bug – with little brother Riley not far behind. Eric’s wife, Julie, looks after them all and makes sure the boys are fueled up for the ride (when she’s not out running).
Eric has taken on the role of Director of Operations after one year as a Level 2 Coach for the Morgantown Trailhawks. He and his team agree that the first year was a blast – if a little damp – and he is looking forward to a bright future for NICA in West Virginia. “Let’s keep it rolling!”
