Where can we find you out riding?

I took this year off of teaching to travel and bike as much as possible. It has given me the opportunity to ride some amazing trails! My favorite trips so far this year have been to Brevard, NC and Moab. Finally got to check the Whole Enchilada off my list! Although I love a good bike road trip, there is no place like home right here in Northwest Arkansas. I'm still exploring the endless trail options here, but Coler and Kessler are my favorites by far!

 

Favorite post-ride food or drink: 

I'm a sucker for sweet and salty. I tend to just hit the snacks hard, anything chocolate, some french fries, and some sweet tea.

 

What are you getting into in 2018? 

There is so much I see for 2018! I want to continue to encourage women to fall in love with biking and to see their true potential in it. Being a part of the Roots Mountain Bike Team allows me to stay involved in this through helping with their Women's MTB Retreats and Clinics. I am also working with some incredible women to plan an event that will help connect more women in the NWA bike community. I am excited to both continue to explore the trails and get plugged in to the bike community in my new home in NWA and to travel to explore some of those hidden gem trails across the country. In addition to just having fun on a bike, I plan to race the Southern Enduro Tour and attend as many bike festivals as my wheels will take me to!

 

What ZOIC gear is in heavy rotation right now?

I basically live in the Naveah Camo shorts!
