List past racing accomplishments in any sport you’ve competed in
Being able to finish races, each time getting better times.
What is your first memory of riding a bicycle? My first real memory was at River Legacy about 20 years ago on the old trails before they got closed down.  The old trail head was a long the road where the EKG/AEG is now.There was this downhill with a kicker at the bottom with a sharp left turn a few feet past it.  After a couple of times, I decided to take the kicker and landed too far before I could take the turn and ended up in a “pond” chasing my glasses before they could sink in the water.  Walked out stinking like funk with my dad and brother laughing at me.Probably one of the last few times I was on a bike till about 3-4 yrs ago, where once again I busted my butt at River Legacy but this time I keep on riding.
Why do you ride a bicycle?
For friends, for family, and a lot for the thrill.  Nothing like ripping down a hill at 25 mph, riding down some rock gardens holding on tight bouncing all over the place.
What does Bearded Women mean to you?
A group of individuals who love to ride and compete.  But most importantly the camaraderie and fun that goes a long with it.
