Your bike is in good hands. Night Owl Cycling owner, Kelly Campo, has worked on his own bikes, as well as friends, since the late 70’s. In 2014, Kelly took Portland’s United Bike Institute's Pro Bike Mechanics class and continues to update his skills through UBI’s on-going continuing ed concerning the latest in bike technology and service. Kelly has also worked over the past several years teaching classes on bike related maintenance and repair.
Kelly has been encouraging and teaching others how to mountain bike for years. In 2016, he took a Fluidride Instructor Training (FIT) Level 1 course with retired downhill pro racer Simon Lawton, and he is now a FIT Level 1 Certified Instructor. Kelly is spending a lot of quality time with his “mini” excavator building trails throughout their 122 acres of forestry land. The trails will be “built for teaching” and filled with features to help you learn and master all the skills you need for mountain biking.
Kelly has incorporated his love of biking into his “day job” for the last 20+ years as a physical therapist. He has helped countless athletes with injuries and has incorporated bike fitting into his job as well. Kelly is a certified cycling coach and is trained in the assessment of both running and cycling biomechanics. In addition to mountain biking racing and road cycling, he has competed in numerous triathlons. Kelly has volunteered multiple times with the medical team for the Ironman World Championships.
