why do you ride?
Ever since I started mountain biking, I have been in love with it! I really enjoy being outside… riding my bike mainly! I ride to see myself grow in the sport, learning from every experience. I have made lots of friends on the way, and I really enjoy riding with them. We help each other go faster, and have so much fun doing it! We are always trying new lines, being “adventurous” at times and always laughing about something. Experiences, friendships and new trails get me stoked on riding bikes! No matter how tired I may get!
Advice to UP-AND-COMING cyclists:
Keep it fun! But also stay disciplined and focus on a goal.
Why do you support outride?
I support Outride because it is opening doors for kids that may not get the introduction to cycling otherwise. It gets me really excited that Outride is providing schools with bikes, and helping them develop a passion that will hopefully last a lifetime!
I also think it’s awesome that Outride’s research shows that cycling leads to physiological benefits. Even more reasons to help get more kids riding bikes! Outride is doing great things!
