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!

Nutrition is a big one, I never knew how much of a difference pre-ride, ride and post-ride nutrition can make. I highly recommend checking out TrainerRoads "Ask a cycling coach" Podcast for tons of tips on this. They have a forum as well with great information (you do not have to be a TR user…
