List past racing accomplishments in any sport you’ve competed in
I participated in the smurf boy summer series. I ranked 2nd overall for the series in my age category.
What is your first memory of riding a bicycle?
Riding with my brother Matthew, around the age of 10 or so. We use to ride every wooded area in Columbia, Missouri. I can remember jumping over creek beds on our bikes. The smell of honeysuckle always takes me there.
Why do you ride a bicycle?
The freedom. The smell. The sun. The wind. The heat. The trails. I enjoy the comradery with other riders as well as being comfortable with myself to ride alone. The memories of riding as a kid are with me every time I ride.  Overall, I ride because I feel completely free on a bike.
What does Bearded Women mean to you?
Honestly, I don’t really know yet. I do know that Bearded Women is a group of riders with a shared interest in riding and racing. They also have awesome looking riding attire! I look forward to knowing what it means to be a part of the Bearded Women in the near future.
