Who taught you how to ride a bike & how old were you?
My dad took me on my first bike ride when I was 3. I remember it well since I took off down a hill, went over the bars, and broke a tooth.
What was your first ‘proper’ road bike & what colour was it?
My memory is a bit fuzzy. I don’t remember what if any bikes I rode before my Felt. That’s ok though, Felt is the best anyway.
What’s the most important piece of kit/advice that has helped boost your performance?
Okay, one serious answer for you. Definitely to take recovery more seriously. You can’t get stronger if you only keep pounding yourself into the ground.
What’s your favourite routes/places to ride?
Mt. Lemmon in Tucson, AZ and mountain biking on the Canadian North Shore.
What tips do you have to keep the love of cycling going amidst all the training?
To mix it up! Gravel, cross, MTB it’s all two wheels and it never gets old.
What experiences are still to do on your cycling ‘bucket list’?
I want to do an Ironman one day, does that count as cycling? Don’t worry I’m planning on winging the run and definitely not wearing a sleeveless jersey 😉
