What is a cycling dream of yours?

I just like cycling. I think I’d like to take a mountain biking trip somewhere fun for like a week. I’ve never done that, and it’s hard for me to get away from work for that length of time. Oh, and I’d like to try downhill in Colorado in the summer; which would of course include mountain biking through ski resorts.

What is your favorite place to be around Chattanooga?

The TN River Gorge. In the water or on the mountains around it.

What has been your best moment on the bike so far this year?

This year? 2015? Probably my first mountain bike race with Veronica. The Taco Stand Classic by Chainbuster Racing.

What is the first cycling memory you have?

Probably when I was just learning to ride a bike. I went into the grass, fell over and had to get stitches.

What is your favorite piece of gear?

My mountain bike.

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

The Taco Stand Classic [race].

What’s your advice for a future Velo Vixen?

I was nervous to join, but it’s been a blast so far!
