Stay tuned for inside information about the riders, both on and off the bike.

What’s playing on your iPod right now? I can only listen to really chill music while working so…Cat Power, Bob Dylan, Elliott Smith. I’m open to suggestions on happier mellow music!

What’s your favorite NCNCA race : Nevada City Cycling Classic is a fave as is Mt. Hamilton Road Race for the amazing course, even if it kicks my behind.

When I’m not on my bike you might find me….glued to my computer.
