Board of Directors
Simon Carroll grew up on the Hamilton Mountain exploring the Iroquois Heights trails and the Chedoke radial trail on the used 10 speed road bikes that his folks were kind enough to continually purchase him. He was thrown back into riding when one of his young sons developed a passion for mountain biking. He decided that it was the perfect opportunity to get back into doing something that he loved as a young man. When the opportunity arose to help fill a void in youth cycling in the Golden Horseshoe he jumped at the chance to help get it off the ground. He looks forward to seeing local athletes developing under the GHCH banner.
