About Your instructors

Walker Shaw

Coaching Director

My name is Walker Shaw, and I’m happy to be offering mountain bike instruction at both Rock Creek and Ride Kanuga bike parks. Whether it’s your first day riding mountain bikes or you’re looking to take your riding and race craft to a new level, we have something for you. 

I’m 27 and have been living in WNC for almost 20 years. I’m a huge fan of this area and all the amazing riding this place has to offer. Growing up, I played a wide array of sports and ultimately cycling became my passion. Originally, I raced BMX on the national circuit before making the switch to primarily mountain bike racing at the age of 16. Mountain biking has given me the opportunity to travel to some amazing places and meet some lifelong friends. 

I’m excited to share my cycling knowledge both on and off the bike with you!

Racing Career Highlights:

  • 5 x USAC Collegiate Individual National Champion
  • 1 x USAC Junior National Downhill Champion 
  • 1 x Sea Otter Classic Elite Downhill Winner 
  • 2 x UCI Downhill World Cup Elite Finals

Whether your goal is simply to become more comfortable on your bike, more efficient riding difficult terrain , or improve your overall riding speed, we have something for you. Our mountain bike instructors will tailor each lesson to your current skill set and goals.

JOEY

Joey Juaristi

Coach

My name is Joey Juaristi, and I’m stoked to be offering mountain bike instruction at Ride Kanuga. I started riding BMX bikes in 1997 and grew up digging and riding in the Central Florida BMX scene and all over the East Coast, primarily focused on BMX “trails” (or dirt jumping). In 2016, I purchased my first mountain bike and I’ve been at it ever since. I’ve lived in WNC since 2020 and am grateful to be a part of this amazing riding community. With a lifetime of riding experience, I would love to introduce you to or help you develop the stoke for riding that I’ve enjoyed for decades.

LILLY DRIVER

Coach

Hey, my name is Lilly Driver!! I have been riding mountain bikes for the better part of a decade, starting as an XC rider and evolving into a gravity racer. Along my journey of racing, I have found that I love helping others progress in their riding as well. I am a PMBIA certified coach now and love sharing my passion for the sport.
