YEARS RIDING
Since I was a kid, but more seriously for 17 years

PRIMARY RIDE STYLE
Mountain biking, all mountain or cross-country. Love climbing mountains in the alpine and earning those downhill turns!

FAVORITE RIDE PLACE/ROUTE
Sovereign Single-track, Moab, Powderface Trail, Kananaskis Country, Frisby Ridge, Revelstoke, 7-summits trail, Rossland. But my favourite local route would be in the Pineview Valley in Kamloops with great climbs and swooping switchbacks!

FAVORITE POST-RIDE FOOD/DRINK
Tacos and Red Collar Dubbel or Guinness

BIKE NAME
Yes! Epic or Carbon

CLIMB VS. DESCEND?
I love climbing to the top of mountains! And swooping singletrack switchbacks for descending are pretty great too!

DREAM RIDE
Any alpine trails but Sun Valley, Idaho would be amazing! I have dreamt of riding in Sun Valley for many years and hopefully I will get there soon! Or Tyax Mountain bike adventures in BC.

FULL LYCRA, Y/N?
YES - lycra is the best!

DREAM RACE/EVENT
I love racing 24hr solo races. Or Park City Point to Point race would be amazing too!

I LOVE RIDING WITH
My husband Phil!

QUOTE/MOTTO
If you're not crashing you're not trying and when racing it's pedal, pedal, pedal, pedal...

WHY DO YOU RIDE?
It makes me HAPPY! I SMILE a lot and sometimes I get so excited I get butterflies in my stomach! I love the rush! On longer mountain rides I love the views and the flowers. It's like nothing else matters except my bike and staying on the trail!

SKILL YOU WISH YOU COULD MASTER BUT HAVEN’T (YET)
Super steep uphill rocky climb or ride over log on a steep uphill climb. Need more power!
