What got you into cycling?
For those of you who know my brother, my reason for getting into cycling will not be a surprise. I was given an entry into a triathlon for my birthday. I did that first triathlon on a mountain bike and after that, I bought my first very used, very old road bike. Meeting Chris is what kept me in cycling!
When did you start riding?
I am a fair weathered cyclist. So, every year during triathlon season, since 1995, I have been riding a bike.
When did you begin working in the cycling industry?
What made you choose to work in the industry?
I chose to start working in the industry when Chris was able to realize his dream of opening Bicycle Cove.
What bikes do you currently own?
'17 Trek FX 3 WSD
'15 Trek Cali SLX [Now available for sale at Bicycle Cove South!]
If you could have any bike regardless of cost what would you choose?
Ummmm, I don’t know. Chris what would I pick?
What's your favorite local race or event?
My favorite local race is the Huntsville Sprint Triathlon. I have done it every year since I moved. I love to participate with first time triathletes and witnessing the joy and pride that greets them at the end of the race. And, it is a great snapshot of our amazing triathlon community. The seasoned triathletes are there volunteering and are so welcoming and encouraging!
Who is your favorite pro cyclist?
Fabian Cancellara. He's even better looking in person!
What would your dream cycling trip look like?
Anywhere in Europe on a bike works for me!
What's your fondest cycling memory?
Chris and I used to ride every Sunday together and then stop at a local market for snacks. I love cycling with people, and I love for any bike ride to end with food.
