Cat 4 Road, Cat 4 Cross, Cat 4 Co-Captain
Nicole is a Colorado native but didn’t start exploring it on a bike until three or four years ago. The world of cycling sucked her in after she finished her first Courage Classic, and hasn’t let go since. Wanting to learn more, get stronger, and take her chance at racing a bit, she was thrilled to join the Naked Women’s Racing team in August of 2013! As part of a stellar team, she looks forward to discovering new places to ride, learning from her teammates, and giving back to the cycling community.
When not on a bike, Nicole spends her days as an Orthopedic Physician Assistant at Children’s Hospital. She loves to go on long bike rides with her husband Stuart, and hang out with her awesome French Bulldogs, Frankie and Stella.
