A lover of time trials, mountains, and time trials up mountains, you will find me giddy on the start line of stage races, hill climbs, and any road race that features a long painful climb. I've also discovered that I'm the happiest with a race when I get to be the super-domestique that is instrumental to my team mate's win. Leadouts FTW - literally! I'm excited for another year of competing for GC titles, and helping my team mates get to the top step of every podium we encounter.
Outside of road cycling, I'm also in my happy place on my CX bike, road running, swimming, doing yoga and combining my disciplines to race duathlons and triathlons. When I'm not chasing an endorphin rush, I enjoy fresh coffee, homemade cookies and my two pet guinea pigs.

I am really happy to be back for a second season with GS. I was introduced to bike racing in 2009 through a couple of Tuesday Nighters, but decided to pursue mountain biking and dabble in triathlons before finding my way back to racing last year. Although my focus will be road racing this season, I still love all types of biking. From July to December 2016 I was cycle touring in Europe. I spent some time riding in Provence, then flew to Norway and cycled from Oslo to Rome. Riding a bike that does not weigh close to 90 lbs is still a novelty!
When I am not cycling, I also enjoy ski touring, hiking, and just about anything that takes place outside. To keep things interesting, I also take dance classes in heels and perform in the occasional dance show.

After nearly 20 years of procrastinating, I did my first road race in 2012. This year will be my fifth season racing and my first with the Glotman Simpson team. My goal is to help the team continue to make an impact on the BC road racing scene while improving my strength, skills and tactics. It can be a challenge to balance life and a meaningful career with elite sport; I'm pleased to be joining a team with values and goals similar to mine.

I live in Penticton, BC and spend my time climbing in the mountains and up to the ski hills of the Okanagan. I am a lover of any challenging hot road race, preferably with a lot of elevation gain. I came to bike racing from short course triathlon, and cross country running at the University of Victoria. I love the places you see and the team cohesion cycling offers. This year I'm excited to keep challenging myself and help the GS women pick up some podiums along the way.
Outside of road racing I spend my time baking bread, mountain biking and wrestling with my French Bulldog, Hamilton. I have a degree in Psychology and enjoy learning more about the mental aspect of sport and racing.

I’m so excited to return to GSC again in 2017. I’m looking forward to a role as race ambassador, primarily focusing my energy within the women's’ skills clinics, groups rides and hopefully encouraging more women into racing. However, you’ll still find me helping my teammates out at the local weekly races!
Outside of cycling I split my time between triathlon and UX design; I've also been told I’m a crazy cat lady in training. I love climbing hills, climbing mountains, anything that isn’t flat and racing in the heat. When I’m not cycling or training for triathlon, I like to spend time at yoga, at the gym, hiking, snowshoeing or cooking. I definitely need coffee in the morning, and my favorite food is sushi.

Growing up as a classical musician in training I was discouraged from all activities that could lead to injury, including riding a bike. After an early retirement from my music career in 2011, I discovered cycling as an excellent means to avoid taking the bus. Soon I found that cycling was also a great way to challenge myself and put my competitive side to use, and that it was enjoyable!
2016 was my first year with GS and my first full season of racing. I am very excited for the 2017 season and look forward to continuing to develop as a rider and learning from my teammates. My goals for this season are to continue to improve my skills and fitness, to race as much as possible, and above all to have fun!

I am originally from Saskatoon, SK. I am doing a short stint of adventure in Vancouver this summer, and Glotman Simpson has welcomed me to their race team with open arms! I want to get a good chunk of BC riding and racing experience under my belt, and am looking forward to helping and supporting the other women involved in the club. I have been involved in competitive sport since I was 6 - speed skating, track, soccer, mountain, road and CX. Because of my background in speed skating I have a definite inclination towards sprints and TTs - I'm really excited to do some awesome leadouts with the team!
I'm also an avid outdoors enthusiast - camping, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, you name it. I also really enjoy doing yoga, and recently have started boxing, which I am loving! I will be starting university at U of S in the fall - my end goal being physiotherapy. Until then, I am living it up in beautiful BC!

I enjoy bringing the action to the peloton, and am likely to be found in the front dropping the hammer, or constantly on the attack. On the rural roads, I like to engage with the female club riders to help develop their riding techniques and skills.
One of my most memorable experiences on the bike was in 2015, when I traveled to Belgium to ride the classic cobbled climbs and countryside of the old and new Tour of Flanders routes. My passion for cycling extends from a life-long dream of playing in the outdoors. Alongside backcountry skiing, mountaineering, and rock climbing, the only time I make for sitting still is to drink coffee.
