Biography

Built of wanderlust, Derek Meier has been a wilderness guide for over 15 years.  His obsession for all things outside started by getting lost in the woods around home and being late for dinner much to his mother’s dismay.  To fuel his adventures, he biked 50 miles to his favorite donut shop throughout high school and so began his love affair with the bicycle (and donuts). As luck would have it fatbikes became popular at the same time he failed to pass Jr. Nordic as an adult and like an omen from above, he embraced fatbikes, the winter wonderland of Alaska’s trails, and very low PSI’s.
