I’ve been racing with Velo Bella since about 2004. In that time I’ve had some awesome opportunities and have met some of the best people I could have ever hoped to run across during that time. The network that Velo Bella provides has also really helped me make some of the cross-country moving I’ve done in the past years a little better as there are always people to ride with.
I currently reside in Patterson, NY with my husband Mike, our beagle and whatever critters might have stowed away and followed us from Marin.
The trail riding is accessable and plentiful (at least so far in the summer) and the downhilling is KILLER! I’m currently re-learning how to ride the slick roots and rocks of the East Coast and so far with all of the rain it’s been exciting.
I love meeting new people to ride with, teach and learn from, so if you see me around please say hi!
