As a longtime active member of TMTA (since 2008), I am passionate about improving bike riding and hiking opportunities in the Tehachapi area.  My interests include mountain biking, dirt bike riding, horse riding, hiking, and geology.  I am a family man with a love for the outdoors and enjoying time with good friends.  As a resident of Tehachapi since 2004, I’m excited to see all of the positive change and growth in the local biking community and I hope to add to that positivity and growth as president of TMTA.  “Before you complain…have you volunteered yet?”



Dan Dunn

Graphic Design Artist


I moved to Tehachapi with my wife and two kids from the LA area 20 years ago. Before that, I grew up in the Antelope Valley area and graduated from AVHS.

I’ve been involved with the local cycling community since I arrived here in 1997 and a TMTA member since 2009. For the past few years, I’ve been a coach with the local Middle/High School Warrior’s Mountain Bike Team which continues to grow every year with some of the best kids on earth.


With my 40+ years in Graphic Design, I’ve had the opportunity to support the mtn bike team, TMTA, and other events that promote the outdoor activities available here in the Tehachapi Valley.
It’s been exciting to watch how much the cycling community has grown in the past few years and to be a part of that, has been a privilege. 


Mike McCool

Trail Crew Leader



Mike McCool is our chief trail designer and maintainer. He has earned the nickname "Digger" for a good reason. He's been responsible for quite a few of the trails that have been added to the TMTA trail system for the past several years. When you don't see him with a pick or shovel in his hands, he's out there shredding his creations. Next time you see Mike, shake his hand and tell him thanks for all of his hard work.


Randy Kurin




I’m a married father of six full time and a semi-retired Air Force veteran and civil servant. I’ve been mountain biking since the late 90s when I bought my first “real” mountain bike. I had a brief, 6 years or so, spell of a road-riding disease but was cured during COVID-19 when I got back on my mountain bikes. My wife, Tesa, got me involved in the TMTA and they have been an amazing group of people to work with. I’m excited to be part of this organization full of people passionate about cycling and the cycling community in general. I’m happy to be involved in what the TMTA is doing here in Tehachapi and the surrounding communities. I spend a lot of my free time out riding the trails so make sure to say “hi” when you pass me, I’m not one of those fast people.


Rebecca Wuth




Becca is a wife to a crazy mountain biker, a mother to three more mountain bikers, a photographer, and the secretary for the TMTA. Becca began her own mountain biking journey after her son completed his first season on the Tehachapi MTB Team. First, her husband got hooked and then before long she was out on the TMTA trails learning to navigate the gnar and keep the rubber side down. The Wuth’s became a mountain biking family with all three kids on the team and Becca and her husband coaching for the SoCal Youth Cycling League. Long before getting on a bike, Becca also enjoyed trail runs and hikes on the TMTA trails with her friends. With all that time on the trails, Becca volunteered to support the TMTA with her organizational and record-keeping skills as the secretary of the TMTA. 

Tracy Jones

Social Media Coordinator



I am so blessed to have the opportunity to serve TMTA as Social Media Coordinator. ... I grew up riding ponies and working at a pony ride from age 9. The day after graduating high school I starting my career in horse racing. Worked as an exercise rider, assistant trainer, groom, and foreman. Additionally, held a second job in public relations at the track. ... I got into mountain biking in 2016 and fell in love with the sport and the friendships I gained. Began racing XC, and Enduro and made even more wonderful friends. 

A few years back I had the opportunity to coach the So. Cal Youth Mountain Bike Team and I will do so for years to come. ... In 2018 I started the Kern County Chapter of Girlz Gone Riding, a women's mountain biking group that encourages more women to ride. There are 7 chapters now with over 4,000 members.  GGR creates events which include our annual Big Bear Weekend and monthly group rides divided into skill levels (beginner to advanced). ...If I'm not on the trails, I enjoy being a mom to my 16 yr old son, music, concerts, music festivals (usually see me in the pit and crowd surfing), sports, including, college basketball, football, baseball, hockey, cycling, golf, etc ...  Be happy, be yourself, and be healthy... See you on the trails!!
