Q&A with Steven
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT WORKING AT THE CYCLING HOUSE?
It is the amazing people and the unique experience each camp location brings. From the staff to the campers we all shre a passion for cycling that brings us together. Having the opportunity to get to know people from around the world who have a common love of cycling is honetsly my dream job! The energy everyone brings mixes to make every camp a truly unique experience. The Cycling House famly is truly one of a kind. I’m happy I get to be a part of it.
Mount Lemmon in the Tucson camp is by far my favorite ride. Where else can you start in the Sonoran desert and ride 6 climate zones into an Alpine environment?
ONE OF THE BEST DAY'S YOU'VE EVER HAD ON THE BIKE
One of the best days I’ve had on a bike is riding the Six Gap Century that leaves from the small town of Dahlonega GA. It is a marquee ride through secenic North Georgia mountains with 11,000+ feet of climbing in 105 miles. Pro tip: Stop by Sunrise Grocery for an apple pie and you’ll get over the last two gaps.
My name is Tyler Jordan and I am a thirty year old multi-sport athlete from the small town of Jasper, GA. I’m a fan of beer, bikes, burritos, and outdoor activities. I’m always ip for an adventure; especially if it involves some sort of cycling or running in a new place. My days usually start with a good coffee, exploring new places on two wheels with friends, and ends with a cold beer.
My cycling background started in BMX when I was just a little kid. In high school I got my first “high end” mountain bike where I cruised the local trails in Georgia building up my bike handling skills. In college, while pursing a cross country schlorship, I got injuried and found my way back to the bike. My emplouer, Lifetime Bikes, saw potential and hooked me up with another mountain bike. I started racing the local and regional scene winning most of the events.
It wasn’t until college that I attended my first triathlon as a spectator. The drive to compete in the sport set in and I tried lap swinning for the first time at the age of 22 in 2010. I ended up having great success racing as an “Age Grouper” throuhgout the first three years and received my Pro-License in 2014. Fast forward to 2015 where I moved across country to Arizona to expand my race portfolio on the West coast and explore my relationship with my now wife.
