Cat 4 Road – Club
Monica has always loved cycling but never knew that there were so many great trails to explore right here in Colorado. She is ½ German and was used to all the bike trails in Europe. In 2015 Monica wanted to find a way to lose weight. She wasn’t getting much exercise in with all the work she was doing running her company, Pink Realty. She then realized that she has always loved to cycle, she didn’t know it was possible in Colorado, but she was determined to find a way. A good choice cycling was, as Monica is now addicted to cycling and she can’t stop. She has since lost over 50 pounds. She enjoys the adventures of new routes as well as the Colorado scenery. Monica loves to challenger herself by getting better every day. Monica would love to travel the world one day by bike. That would be the best adventure.
