PRIMARY RIDE STYLE
Mostly road and cyclocross, but I am a daily commuter, also.
FAVORITE RIDE PLACE/ROUTE
I love to climb up to Hyalite Reservoir from downtown Bozeman, MT. It’s a consistent uphill, and once you get into the National Forest there’s no cell service. I love the quiet scenic climbs.
FAVORITE POST-RIDE FOOD/DRINK
Lately, I’ve been really digging coconut water after my hot rides. And any time I can finish a big ride with some tacos is a great day.
I used to name my bikes, but now I have so many I’ve lost track! My custom steel frame bike is painted green, and my little brother named it Clover. I know I will never sell that one, so the name is stuck for sure.
CLIMB VS. DESCEND?
Alpe d'Huez (or any of the rides from The Tour, really).
FULL LYCRA, Y/N?
Yes, even when I ride mountain bikes, hah!
I have secretly always wanted to do one of the Red Hook Crit races. It looks like a crazy amount of fun.
I LOVE RIDING WITH
My roommate Aubrey is such a great training partner. She knows when to push the pace and be encouraging, but is also down to take it easy and stop for photo opportunities.
WHY DO YOU RIDE?
I ride so that I can see all the beautiful places near where I live. It’s so amazing all the places a bike can take you, especially on a gravel bike—I feel like I can go absolutely anywhere.
SKILL YOU WISH YOU COULD MASTER BUT HAVEN’T (YET)
We have a lot of mountain biking available in Bog Sky, near where I live. I am really working on being more confident on the mountain bike with downhill and hitting the techy switchbacks—it’s still a bit scary for me.
