Mountain Biking is my therapy session, social connection, physical release and meditative practice. I am a mom of 2 kids, I work outside the home fulltime, I volunteer with my local Mountain Biking club and recently completed my coaching certification. I started really getting into mountain biking in my early 20’s and a few years later I suffered prolonged grief due to the passing of my brother and other family members. I went to counseling, which helped, but I have learned over the years that when the darkness creeps in, it means I need to get out on my bike in the forest. To now be able to share this passion with my kids brings me so much joy!
