At the age of 10, Jeremy was given a bike to stay out of trouble and discovered a way of life that finally made sense. Riding all day every day in the desert landscape of Virgin, Utah became a defining form of meditation and self expression. “When I’m on my bike nothing else matters but every moment I see, smell and feel dirt all around me. It’s like my bike becomes a part of me flowing down a mesa and flying through the air. Words can’t describe it, makes me feel alive.” In 2015 Jeremy’s passion and dedication won him a number plate to the most extreme event in riding, Redbull Rampage. "Stoked to keep riding and pushing myself. Always spread positive vibes!"
"People say you are what you eat, but I believe you also 'are what you wear.' Living sustainably isn't just about what you do, but also about what you put on your body. Wearing eco eye protection is #1 RAD, #2 benefits the planet, and #3 helps you see the world through eco lenses. Thanks ZEAL for making that possible!"
