About us


Michigan is home to some of the best cycling in the world, and we are not afraid to say it. We have some of the best races, some of the best rides, and some of the best people on the planet. kolo t.c. is here to cover, share and explore our roads, trails and races and to meet the people that make it all so darn great.

We also want to spread a little love while we’re on the ride. That’s why you can catch us putting on fundraisers at Yen Yoga & Fitness, fundraising rides all over TC, and helping to spread the good word about non-profits doing good in Traverse City and beyond. You’d be surprised how much goodwill you can spread while wearing spandex. And it’s a darn good time, too.

Wes Sovis + Operations

A mountain bike specialist, Wes loves nothing more than to spend hours on the VASA. His only regrets in life consist of selling his Cannondale S-Fi and any cookie left uneaten. He’s on Instagram and Strava.


Dan Ellis + International Relations Officer

Dan does much of his talking with his legs. His sculpted, powerful legs. Hmmm. One of the fastest dudes in the state, we’re really chuffed to have him on the team. He’s a really big deal on Instagram and Strava.
