Previous bike experience and history 11 years as a bike messenger racing alley cats and a bunch of NACCC, CMWC and ECMC races and six years as a bike mechanic. Founder of the West Side Invite. 8 years racing cross and 2 on the road. I did two days of track racing last year.
What do you do for fun? Ride bikes, garden, cook, wildcraft edible and medicinal plants, hang out with my cats.
What does it mean to you to be on a WTF team here in Portland? This is so important! There is a constant need for more teams to support new w/t/f riders who are interested in racing, especially for track racing. I hope we can create a team that is supportive and gets more women excited about racing even if they're not on our team.
Goals for the season Figure out what type of track races I like and get comfortable going faster in the corners.
Something random about you. I thought I would hate sanctioned bike racing and avoided it for a really long time!
