If you had a board super power, what would it be?

Do you race? Ride for fun?

I still race and every ride is for fun. I got my first mountain bike as an adult in 1986 to mend a broken heart. The next thing I knew, I was working in a bike shop, riding all the time and trying out a few races. The absolute best thing was meeting the love of my life in the bike shop and riding around the world for three years with him.

Any hidden talents?

I can sew and dance but not really cook

Favorite ride snack? Waffles

Favorite food? Chocolate anything

What progression with the Little Bellas are you most excited about?

The potential for growth is so exciting! The number of inquires about the program and the number of people that want to start a program is so motivating, it will be fun to watch it all unfold.
