Meet The Team
Meet the people that make it happen
Thomas (First Journey Trails) has repeatedly shown the benefits of working closely with Land Managers and fully understands the requirements to ensure all stakeholders are accounted for and has taken this message even further by educating user groups that it leads to a more efficient project if you identify and deal with the issues up front, instead of putting out fires as you go. This is made evident in the detailed plans that have been submitted to our program, which fully outlined exactly what was to be undertaken in the field setting.Desi Cheverie, MFLNR District Rec Officer
Tom is an accomplished trail builder, project planner and expert craftsman. The completion of the Williams Lake Cycling Club’s recent project, the Snakes and Ladders rebuild, could not have been done without him. With over 10 kilometres of flowy single track that features countless berms, multiple jumps and unique wood structures, Snakes and Ladders provides a testament to both his professionalism and creativity. Thomas was the project coordinator,a planner and one of the primary builders on the project and his expertise was evident in all phases of the build.Shawn Lewis, President WLCC
