What has been your best moment with the Velo Vixens so far?

I have enjoyed all of my experiences with the awesome group of ladies associated with the Velo Vixens. My first moments with this group were at a beginner mountain bike clinic and an intermediate mountain bike clinic on the same day. I enjoyed meeting everyone and learning proper techniques for riding. What stands out the most to me is the continual outpouring of support and camaraderie that is offered. I have been fortunate to have moral and emotional support from these wonderful ladies while recovering from an unfortunate mountain biking accident. The continual outpouring of encouraging words and well wishes is enlightening. I enjoy the community and opportunities that have been made available as a result of joining!

What’s your advice for a future Velo Vixen?

You won’t find a more supportive, encouraging, sincere and uplifting group of ladies!
