What three things can always be found in your race bag?
My Fluffy Unicorn!! It’s so FLUFFY!
What is your most embarrassing “on the bike” moment?
Hammer Creek road race a few years back… I didn’t realize that a rider had snuck off the front of the pack. Everyone was fighting about who was going to lead the chase and I was like, “Wait… someone’s off the front?” And they all yelled, “YES!” I paid a LOT more attention in races after that!
If you were stranded on a desert island, what 5 things would you want with you?

A lifetime supply of rice and nori – so that I can make sushi rolls with the fish I catch!
A mountain bike to ride around and enjoy the island

My hubby – Mr. Porkchop

What advice do you have for the next generation of women cyclists?
Learn all that you can from the veteran riders around you. Being fast may come easy, but being safe and being smart must be learned through time spent on the bike. Don’t be in such a hurry to upgrade or ride longer, harder, etc. Enjoy the experience of learning and the end result will be far better than if you rush through it!
