Clayton has been in the military for over 20 years and has spent half of that time as a Special Operations Combat Medic. Clayton found mountain biking in 2013 and instantly knew this was the sport for him. In 2015 he got the idea for Ride It Out and decided to launch it the summer of 2017.
Clayton got the idea for Ride It Out while riding the chairlift at Snow Shoe Bike Park in 2015. He realized that mountain biking saved his life and wanted to share the life changing experience with his fellow Veterans. In 2017 Clayton launched Ride It Out as the mountain bike team for Veterans Adventure Group and in the summer of 2018 launched Ride It Out as a stand alone 501(c) 3 Non-Profit Organization.
