Logan Roy – Shop Assistant

Logan has worked for the Compass crew for the past few summers. He’ll be a Sophmore at Western Washington University next year, and is planning to major in Industrial Technology, Vehicle Design. When not hitting the books or building racecars with the WWU Formula team, he likes to spend his time out in neature. Whether he’s skinning up a volcano, or climbing columnar basalt, he embraces the suffering and thrives in the pain cave.

You can find him up at Mt. Baker in the winter in the search for the Ullr goods or on the countless miles of loam lined singletrack near Bellingham or in the Valley in the hunt for Strava glory. In his spare time, he enjoys long hours working on his Subaru, weeding vinyl and researching bottom bracket standards. His favorite color is blue, like the majestic crashing waves of the pacific coast. He rides 29er's, runs 21 psi in is Vigilante’s, 75 psi in his Pike with 4 tokens, and prefers Shimano like a nice cup of licorice spice.

JohnCompassbioJohn Kelly - Guide

Growing up in Pennsylvania, the landscape was much different than that of Washington, but for John, the activities remained very similar. He spent much of his time outside, day and night. From a young age, John loved camping out with his friends, even if just in the back yard.

His passion for the wilderness grew as he got older and discovered how much it had to offer. Whether it be hiking, biking, rafting, or skiing, John feels like a kid again and right at home.

John attended a similar program, and recognized how important it was to have a staff member that was truly passionate about what they were doing. This really inspired John. After working his first program, he knew what he wanted to do in life, share his passions and interest with others. After finishing college in Pennsylvania, John packed up and headed west to continue what he loves doing and exploring new territory at the same time.
