Stefanie McDaniel

Stefanie owes much of her success on the bike to continued quality professional instruction.

Her passion for learning and practice has grown into teaching others how to progress safely and become more confident and skilled riders. Stefanie founded Adrenaline Coaching in 2019, which provides Mountain Bike skills coaching to riders of all ages. Her cornerstone offering is a 4-week progressive coaching program for Women called ‘Slaydies Skills and Shred Series’ which intertwines positive mental messaging throughout the sessions to really make an impact on her students and allow them to step outside of their comfort zone safely! 

Off the bike, Stefanie is an advocate for trail users and access and volunteers time with different local groups to upkeep and maintain trails in the Phoenix Valley. Understanding the importance of not more riders on bikes, but more educated riders on bikes, Stefanie strives to depict the importance of giving back and taking care of trails to riders through her social media.   

Most days you can find Stefanie riding her backyard trails on South Mountain and practicing Olympic Lifting. Stefanie is an avid podcast and audiobook listener and enjoys hanging with friends and family, and traveling with her Husband, Mike, and her furbabe, Bowie. Stefanie also manages her family’s Electrical Contracting business in Mesa, AZ.

Hometown: Gilbert, Arizona

Off Bike Occupation: MTB Instructor & Community Leader 

Favorite Trail: West National, South Mountain Park 

Favorite Bike:

Switchblade. It’s the perfect bike for most of the all mountain riding I do. I definitely find myself reaching for this bike more often than others. Not only does it climb technical terrain like a goat, when you turn it downhill it descends like a dream!
