What's your role on campus?
Marketing and Digital Media Coordinator, Research & Innovation
How long have you been riding a bike?
I’ve been riding bikes without training wheels since I was four or five years old, but I really started biking when I came to UNR for college and joined the bike team, Nevada Cycling, in 2001 and started doing mountain bike racing.
What's the most fun you've ever had on a bike?
Every time I mountain bike I feel like it’s the most fun I’ve ever had! I love our Tahoe, Truckee and local Reno trails. I think that Tahoe has world-class mountain biking and I’ve biked in many different states and countries! I had great fun being on the bike team in college and I can’t believe my good fortune in stumbling into that – it completely shaped my life from then on.
What's great about bike commuting to the University of Nevada, Reno?
I don’t commute regularly at this time, but I have over the years of being a student and working on campus. Not having to find parking is a huge plus, and I’ve always loved to ride through Rancho San Rafael Park if it’s on my way because it’s so relaxing and serene. Getting fresh air and some pedaling in is such a nice way to start the day!
