My first job out of university involved a very long commute with too many public transit transfers and waiting at bus stops. I was intrigued by other bike commuters I worked with and decided to give it a go! My first bike, a vintage yellow Peugeot and daily commute made me fall in love with bikes and cycling as a sport.
What is your favorite pump-up song?
Showdown by Pendulum
What you can’t leave for a bike ride without?
My Garmin inreach mini. Most of my rides are on roads or trails with no cell service and the inreach is a must incase of an emergency or when my planned ride is way too ambitious
What inspires & motivates you?
I'm motivated by achieving goals I set for myself, getting stronger, going further and accomplishing things I never imagined I'd be able to do. My most recent source of inspiration has been Lael Wilcox. I'm in awe of her adventures and accomplishments and inspired to seek longer and wilder off road adventures this year.
What events are you planning to participate in this year?
I'm really looking forward to the Merritt Crown with the Evergreen team and I'd like to try a mountain bike or gravel stage race.
