How did you get into cycling?: I was sort of pushed into cycling by a co-worker who couldn't stop talking about the sport. He told me about the Ready to Roll cycling groups and I started to join them to get some miles in on the weekends. I fell in love with the sport and kept riding ever since.
What makes you want to race?: I like to challenge myself but more importantly I enjoy the events. I love planning trips, getting my friends together for a roadtrip and experiencing something new! We get to meet new people and hear their stories. I've raced with some big names in women's cycling! These races give me all of that and more!
Describe your family/life/career: My passion is building people up and creating a community around me that feels supported. I enjoy spending my time putting together events or finding ways to seek out a new experience and cycling helps me stay active with a goal in mind.
Goals for 2021: My goal is to race non-stop in 2021! I want to place in the top 10 in at least three races and I want to move up to Cat 4 in road and Cat 3 in fixed gear racing. I also want to get all of our ladies to move up at least 1 category in any of the fields they take on! YUH!
