About Me

Grew up riding the Black Diamond Mines with my dad. Stopped riding for many years as girls, cars and life in general got in the way. I have kids of my own now and started riding again as soon as they were old enough to come along.I moved to the land of Roadies last year so I cant just ride to the trail head from the house anymore. Drove for over 2 hours to take my kids riding at China Camp last weekend... WORTH IT!
