Chris and Leslie Kehmeier


“There’s no such thing as a bad ride,” is Chris Kehmeier’s motto. A child of the west, with roots in New Mexico, Nevada and Colorado, Chris has been a mountain biker since 1988 when he and his Trek 820 (complete with Shimano Biopace chainrings) first learned to rip. Since then he’s ridden all over the world. Today, Chris channels his passion, spanning two decades, into designing and building trails as a Principal for C2 Recreation.


Leslie Kehmeier was born and raised in Colorado and is now a globe-trotting adventure photographer and Lead Creative for The Wide Eyed World. Always on the go, she is most comfortable running through airports or behind the wheel of their diesel Sprinter, Henry the Tan Van, in search of good food, amazing coffee and another place to mark off the list from her quest to document every mountain bike trail on the planet.
