Climb

DREAM RIDE
I would LOVE to do a few of the mountain stages of the Tour De France…they can’t be THAT hard, right? Also, there’s incredible wine at the end!

FULL LYCRA, Y/N?
Hell yes! The tighter and shorter the better.

DREAM RACE/EVENT
I would love to run my own retreat weekend with epic riding on freshly paved roads throughout the day, followed by chef-cooked meals, really good wine, and a gorgeous sunset at the end of every day. A girl can dream, right? Who’s in?

I LOVE RIDING WITH
Riding with friends is the best.

QUOTE/MOTTO
Don’t just survive it, go get it!

WHY DO YOU RIDE?
I ride because it makes me feel like a badass superhuman—someone who can take it to the absolute edge both mentally and physically.

SKILL YOU WISH YOU COULD MASTER BUT HAVEN’T (YET)
I’d love to get more technical and tight on descents, especially on steep switchbacks.
