Roberta Smith

Cat 2 Road, Clinic Co-Manager

Roberta is a native of Indiana but moved to Colorado to attend Colorado State University in 1991 and has never left!  She started cycling in high school as this was the most effective mode to get to the Indiana Dunes Beach on her own.  She was a runner for most of her life but then in 2001 did her first triathlon and has been doing crazy things ever since.  Roberta started competitively cycling in 2006.  It was a bit intimidating for her to jump into the sport but she was a part of an all women’s cycling team at the time and it made the transition easier.  Roberta and her supportive husband Paul are active in the cycling community as members of Bicycle Colorado.  They like to ride their single bikes but tandem riding in Europe is one of their favorite adventures!  Roberta is passionate about sharing the cycling experience and joy of cycling with others.  She encourages friends, family members, co-workers, and complete strangers to change how they think about cycling and just get out there and see where two-wheels might take you!
