Cat 4 Road, Cat 4 Cross
Michelle is a Colorado native who discovered cycling 6 years ago after a lifetime of long distance running. She found that she loved spending hours exploring by bike. (Now she loves biking even more than running!) Michelle has been on the club team for the past 3 years and now will try the race team to push her cycling up a notch. She loves being part of a team of women that share encouragement, friendship, and a passion for cycling.
When not on a bike, Michelle teaches 4th grade in Jefferson County. She loves anything that involves being active outside, and she is always up for a challenge.
Personal Goal: To complete her first season of cyclocross this fall. To participate in road racing events in the spring.
