In a continuation of our series showcasing the people who make Eskapee what it is, this week we’re showcasing Canadian rider, trail-builder, photographer, and stor(e)y teller Steve Storey with 15 questions and 10 of Steve’s favorite photos (each with their own story).
Who’s is Steve Storey?
I am a mountain biker, trail builder, traveler, writer, aspiring photographer and videographer.
What makes you happy?
As corny as it sounds, chasing dreams. Nothing gives me more satisfaction and happiness than chasing a dream or goal and achieving it. It’s what keeps me motivated to learn. It’s what keeps riding interesting. There’s always another level to be achieved or plateau to break through.
What is your greatest fear?
Life altering injury. I’m terrible at being injured. Luckily the longest period I’ve ever been unable to ride has only been about 4-5 months. It’s tough to stay positive during those times but I also realize any injuries I’ve had have been pretty minor in the grand scheme of things. A major injury doesn’t frighten me on a daily basis or even cross my mind ever, but when having to think about what I do fear in life, that’s the closest thing I have as a fear.
Now that I think about it, regret is probably a bigger fear, which is probably why I end up with less regrets and more injuries (haha).
