Name: Sam Orskog, aka the G is Silent

Occupation/Off-Bike Skills: Lead line cook at VStreet in Center City. Vegan foods and party vibes.

Disciplines: I like a little bit of everything. Mtbing is so much fun!

Cats or cat alternates: I have a dopey pup named Olive with a major underbite. She’s so ugly that she’s cute!

Favorite snacks: Popcorn! Cinnamon buns! Guac!

Why do you ride? 

It keeps me balanced. When I don’t ride, I become an unhappy blob. It’s also an activity that I enjoy doing with my partner!

Bike career highlights:

Climbed Mt. Haleakala in Maui (8,300ft!!!). So cool!
