A passion for nature, physical fitness and advocating for empowered women, is the motivation behind developing STS.
It is my vision to mentor young girls towards healthy and positive lifestyle choices through the sport of fat biking. Assisting them in the development of life skills that can be utilized outside of riding, such as: marketing and promotional projects for the team, trail building, environmental awareness, public speaking, grant research and development, fundraiser events, community volunteering, and advocating for young women’s growth in non-traditional roles.

Married to Erik Rogers, and the mother of two daughters who are Singletrack Sisters.
It is my passion to support and encourage young women to not only challenge themselves physically but experience the many benefits of a healthy active lifestyle. Helping the girls figure out what it means to support and be supported by team mates and sisters on the trail and off. Encouraging girls to deal with challenges and stress in a healthy way, creating habits that will serve them well throughout their lives.
Bike Maintenance Manager for STS, retired optometrist. He graduated from The Ohio State University, but is quick to add that his undergraduate degree is from U of M.
Doug has had a long term love affair with all things cycling. A hip condition forced him to stop running in his 40’s. Fortunately, his hip didn’t mind cycling. He commuted by bike, being driven off the roads only by winter’s worst. He completed numerous centuries as well as four Lumberjack off road centuries. Among his fondest memories are several cycling trips he took with his son to Colorado.
Along the way, Doug has picked up a few bike maintenance skills from his son, who worked his way through college as a part time bike mechanic. Helping the STS team maintain their bikes is one way for him to give back to Cadillac’s cycling community. He is excited to see so many young girls involved in the sport. Brothers, boy friends, and even parents may even get inspired to start riding, helping to ensure a strong future for cycling in Cadillac.
