How can you not get into mountain biking when you live at the base of Mt. Tam? I was introduced to mountain biking by my dad and I have been hooked ever since. I have been riding for 11 years and am not myself if I can't get on my bike regularly. I occasionally race for the fun and challenge, but love meeting new people and seeing how stoked they get when they are able to accomplish something new on the bike. I also enjoy road biking, downhill and bike parks, but mountain biking is my passion. While I am normally on my bike, I enjoy all outdoor activities, including hiking, camping, snowboarding, and kayaking, and pretty much anything that allows me to be active in nature. Being hard of hearing, mountain biking has given me the confidence and passion to face life's obstacles with a smile and a positive outlook. And as much as I love riding, it's really just a good excuse to pig out on post ride hamburgers! When I'm not riding or enjoying other fun activities, I'm a professional hairstylist in Mill Valley. I love that my job allows me to meet new people and help them look and feel their best. I hope to meet you out on the trails!
