Meet the Team


Kevin Schmidt – PT, MSPT, Pedal PT

Following a dislocation/fracture of his elbow during a high school basketball game, Kevin experienced Physical Therapy first hand, and after a full recovery was immediately sold on the career path.  Kevin went on to receive his Masters of Science in Physical Therapy (MSPT) degree from Grand Valley State University (Michigan) before promptly moving to Portland in 2002.

After becoming a year-round bike commuter in 2007 and experiencing numerous cycling-related pains himself, Kevin’s interest in cycling pains and Bike Fitting concepts prompted him to take extensive continuing education in becoming the very first certified ‘Bike PT’ in Portland, OR.  He founded Pedal PT in August of 2012.

Kevin strives to promote the benefits of Physical Therapy while leading an active, ‘car-less’ lifestyle throughout Portland, and has been featured in BICYCLING MagazinePortland Monthly Magazine, DETAILS Magazine, Bicycle Transportation Alliance,, and Portland Pedal Power, and was an invited speaker at the 2017 American Physical Therapy Association’s national conference.

Outside of the office, Kevin enjoys spending time reading and learning new things, riding his bike, playing guitar, and spending time with his wife and two kids, ages 16 and 14.

He is also an enthusiastic supporter of the role of the Physiotherapist in managing cyclists and Bike Fit, and created an educational course for PTs to learn Bike Fitting, called the The Pedal PT Online Academy.  and also developed the very first wheel-on bike trainer to accept all wheel, tire, and axle sizes, called The Portland.

Brian ‘Ziggy’ Yellin, PT, DPT

Brian is originally from Houston, TX. He received an undergraduate degree in Economics from Washington University in St. Louis in 2001 and was recruited by a large corporation in Houston. Brian excelled in business, but found himself yearning for adventure and chose to chase his childhood dream of living In Portland where he could ski the Cascade mountains and surf the Pacific Ocean, year round. Upon arriving in Portland in 2003, he sold his car, purchased a bike, found community in Ultimate Frisbee, and said “yes” to every PNW adventure proposed to him.
Driven by wanting to maintain these activities throughout his life, he was motivated to further his education and attended Pacific University in Hillsboro, Oregon where he received his Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2010. He discovered that he enjoyed sharing his passion for adventure in the outdoors and being active in sports while volunteering to be a Big Brother to a disadvantaged child diagnosed with childhood diabetes, and while working with and volunteering at sports tournaments with teenagers who had acquired paraplegia or quadriplegia. After graduation, Brian found he enjoyed the diversity and fast pace of a non-profit hospital in downtown Portland and was humbled by working with the underserved patient population.
Brian found himself depressed, in 2019, when a chronic Achilles pain prevented him from doing all the activities that defined him and his community. After struggling to solve it himself, he chose to reach out to another Physical Therapist for help. His outcome was wildly successful, becoming a competitive trail runner and finding a new community within. Gaining the perspective of being the patient, he realized he wanted to “switch gears” in his career and pass on what he learned to those who also enjoy staying active into their later decades.
Through this journey, Brian grew with all the diverse patient perspectives and experiences, finding his strengths as caring, compassionate, and enjoying community. He is driven by keeping trail runners running and is interested in helping those who need prosthetics to run trails by donating his gait training skills. Currently, Brian enjoys working with patients of all activities and ages to inspire confidence in living their best life. In his free time, Brian can be found enjoying: spending time with his spouse, Kim (a veterinary oncologist) and their dog, Raven, and cat, Rafa; volunteering to advocate for the ecosystems of the forests and ocean; bike commuting year round; backcountry skiing; trail running; surfing; film festivals; adventuring; or cooking amazing meals to share with friends and family.
