Nick was born and raised in Winona Lake, in fact, he has only had one zip code (46590) having stayed local and graduating from Grace College with a double major in Business Management and IT. The MTB trails were his playground growing up in Southtown. He’s looking forward to the Greenway expansion so he can come to the Village with his family to visit all the great amenities Winona Lake has to offer.

The Lothamers moved to Winona Lake in 2007, and Nathan started riding bicycles in 2013 at the age of 47 by going on 2nd Mile Adventure MTB Trips. He has been volunteering with KCV since 2014 and now enjoys road, gravel, and mountain biking. He is also a race director for the Fat and Skinny Tire Festival.
Fred has a passion for community and making that community safe for everyone to ride in. He sits on the advisory committee for Ride+Walk and has a direct line to our Mayor. Fred has completed the RAGBRAI many times and says it is the most fun you can have on two wheels for a week. When Fred is not riding his bike you can find him poolside with his Black Lab Maggie.
Kim works closely with Fred making our community a great place to live, work, and play. Working alongside Fred one of their biggest achievements is developing and obtaining a grant for Tracey’s Trailer; a mobile bicycle education classroom that helps our elementary schools teach our younger generation how to ride safely. She is also a Giant Liv Ambassador and is passionate about women’s cycling.
Did you know Barry is a six-time BMX national champion? That’s right, he won’t tell you about it because he is too modest, but we think it is pretty awesome. Barry has lived in Warsaw, Winona Lake for a long time. However, he recently was able to purchase Trailhouse from long-time owners Rob and Nancy Gast. He is carrying on their tradition of a small-town shop with big-time brands. When he is not working at the shop, you can find him hanging out with his family on Winona Lake.
Megan is an engineer at a local construction company and has lived in the Warsaw/Winona Lake for 18 years with her husband and two (almost grown) children. She is passionate about our community and cycling, you can usually find Megan at the Wednesday night group rides that leave from Trailhouse Village Bicycles and helping with Tracey’s Trailer bide education program in our local schools. She enjoys road cycling, bike rides with her whole family, and even has a dog bike trailer so her dogs can tag along!
Jake has been addicted to all things bike since he was 11 years old. Jake oversees the trails and is proud of being able to help shape the same trails that shaped much of his youth. He lives in Kosciusko County on his family farm with his wife Alyssa (who is a fellow bike addict) and daughter.
