|List and describe your bicycles||2011 Specialized Hardrock Sport 29er, no frills, all factory…I call him Bruce, and I am not clipped in (yet).
2013 Felt Z85 road bike (the she-beast) purchased specifically for the 2013 HHH.
|List past racing accomplishments in any sport you’ve competed in||
I don’t race (yet) but I DID ride the HHH 50 miles (2013). I am very proud that in both my age group and the overall standings I ranked solidly in the middle.
|What is your first memory of riding a bicycle?||
I don’t remember my first bike but I have great memories of my little brother’s banana yellow “Swing Bike”; we beat the crap out of it! The other odd bike was from college. I wanted a 10-speed to get around campus but Dad bought me a Honda “People” bike. I was mortified and refused to ride it.
|Why do you ride a bicycle?||
It clears my head and makes me feel free. Plus I like the challenge, and the feeling of accomplishment when I have pushed myself.
|What does Bearded Women mean to you?||
This team is very encouraging. I feel like I am part of a family and I have a bunch of brothers (and a very pushy sister, haha) looking out for me.
