Ana Pimsler and Adam Havner
Ana and Adam call Santa Rosa, Calif., home. They spend most of their free time mountain biking in Annadel State Park and exploring the surrounding areas via gravel bikes. Both are Bay Area natives, and love everything about Northern California, except fire season. And pandemics. Ana is a high school math teacher, and helps coach the composite high school mountain bike team. She is a co-captain of Hella Mello Racing, and is looking forward to the return of events, mainly to see friends together again. Adam is an engineer, and serves on the board of the Redwood Empire Mountain Bike Alliance. Adam recently cut off his long hair, but yes, he is the same person in the photos. Both have a strange love for Type 2 fun, although Ana may actually look forward to a route with known hike-a-bike sections. They started bikepacking about 3 years ago, and it has quickly become a top choice for exploration.
