My passion is women in cycling… to empower women to do things they never thought possible, to help women set and reach goals in life, and in cycling. During the past 15 years of my life, I have been involved in the Outdoor Industry. I began mountain biking around that time, working in bike and mountaineering shops, riding radical mountain trails in Montana.
