|List and describe your bicycles||
I have a specialized 29er
|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.
