Gravel, Mountain biking, Cyclocross
Favorite Cycling Snack
Swedish fish and anything with Peanut Butter
Depends on the day, but my Surly Karate Monkey is what I learned to mountain bike on, so it will always hold a special place in my heart. Plus, the rust-orange paint job matches my hair, so I feel like we were made for each other.
Not exactly a life motto, but repeating the quote “I am a badass mother who don’t take no crap off NOBODY” from Cool Runnings got me through a 32-hour race once, and in general I think it’s a good reminder that we can do a lot more than we think if we just BELIEVE we’re capable of great things.
So many! Kari Ann Gibbons, Kate Coward, and Sveta Vold to name a few local badasses who I stalk follow.
Describe your perfect day
A summer day JAM-PACKED with all of my favorite outdoor activities surrounded by everyone I know, and asleep by 10pm.
