Jeff McLaine
Guide – Northeast Wilderness Experience | Manager – Sawmill Cycles

An endless source of knowledge, Jeff loves talking gear almost as much as he does using it on his incredible adventures. When not working in the shop, the next places to look for Jeff are in the woods on his mountain or gravel bikes, on the water aboard his beloved SUP, or in the ocean catching waves on his surfboard. He is down to guide any adventure, with the Wilderness First Responder certification and decade’s experience to back it up.
