Biography

Off-the-bike hobbies: Writing, travel

Words to live by: When it's hard, go harder.

What got me into cycling: When I was 8, I spent the summer watching American Flyers and then going out to try to ride all the way up each hill in the neighborhood. I forgot how much I loved that until a messy break up had me plunging into daily spin classes. Everything came back together again a couple years later when I finally got a bike and headed up Hawk Hill for the first time.

Day job: Writer/Editor

Where I grew up: western North Carolina

What got me into racing: I became obsessed with spin classes after a bad breakup. A couple years later, my now-partner convinced me to take it outside and buy a bike so we could ride around the city together. Then I decided maybe I should try doing some actual races instead of competing with every poor soul on a bike in Golden Gate Park.

Favorite post-race food: Rice, fried eggs, soy sauce.

Number of years with the team: 6

Favorite ride: Anything on the Blue Ridge Parkway, Mt. Tam

Most memorable race: Patterson RR 2012: The first race I let myself say out loud that I wanted to win. I didn't win first, but second + some confidence felt fantastic.

Best team moment: Cantua Creek 2016. After spending so much time being injured, down, terrified of crashing, and then having no sleep and a stomach full of cramps the night before, I felt like I barely made it to the race itself, let alone be able to do much. But Allie and Sandy reminded me to

Cycling accomplishments: Getting back on the bike after a couple years of crashes, surgeries, and complications. But I couldn't have done that without constant support of my teammates, so being a part of JLVelo is the best accomplishment!

My cycling hero(s): Jens Voigt
