Peter HaileAssistant Coach
Alma Mater: Lees-McRae
Originally from Fort Collins, Colo., Haile joined Brevard College Cycling in 2013 after a year as head cycling coach at Union College in Barbourville, Ky.
Prior to his time at Union College, Haile attended Lees-McRae College and raced in many mountain bike, cyclocross, and road national championships where he was an assistant coach for the Lees-McRae cycling team for a year following his graduation.
Recently Haile rode his mountain bike from Banff, Alberta to Antelope Wells, NM on fire trails along the spine of the rocky mountains. The 2,860 mile journey took 22 days and 7 hours. "It was very beautiful", says Haile.
Haile believes the cycling community in Western North Carolina coupled with the amazing roads and trails surrounding the campus facilitate an experience like no other. "Brevard is a wonderful little town in the Blue Ridge Mountains where your neighbors will say hello to you both from the front porch and at the trailhead."
In his limited spare time he enjoys cooking and planning for the next adventure.
