Yes

DREAM RACE/EVENT
I actually don't have one. I'm finding more and more that I enjoy a ride shared with a small number of good friends more appealing than a large event

I LOVE RIDING WITH
Any and all of my Velodonnas members. And my husband, he's pretty great too

QUOTE/MOTTO
Some people feel the rain. Others just get wet.

WHY DO YOU RIDE?
So many reasons! The simplicity of physical exertion which forces me out of my head and into the moment. That is very appealing. Also, cycling keeps me strong

SKILL YOU WISH YOU COULD MASTER BUT HAVEN’T (YET)
Bunny hop
