Cat 4 Cyclocross, Cat 4 Road Co-Captain
Bridgette started road riding in 2011 when she looked to build leg strength after a running injury while living in Boston. With only a few weeks of riding under her belt, she was encouraged to take up racing. It only took five years, a move to Colorado and joining Naked Women’s Racing for her to finally dive in to bike racing. After only a few races, she’s hooked! Growing up on an island, Bridgette spent time running the beaches, up the stair climbs of the local bluffs and riding her bike on the many dirt roads. It seems that this terrain primed her for a good start to racing cyclocross! In 2013, she left the East Coast and moved to Colorado to pursue a second career in nursing. Since then, she has discovered the endless possibilities of exploration by bike – both road and trail. She looks forward to meeting more of her teammates and fellow racers!
Personal Goal: To race all three disciplines next year and to encourage other female cyclists to try racing.
