Brittany Jones

Cat 2 Mountain, Cat 2 Cross, Cat 3 Road, Clinic Co-Manager

Brittany grew up as a dirty little redneck in rural Southwest Colorado. Leaving the ranch behind, she traded in a barrel saddle for a Specialized saddle, and now only gets back on a horse when her sisters need a good laugh at her expense. Originally an avid bike commuter, she now drives over an hour to get to work, but has gradually expanded her repertoire to include a variety of cycling disciplines, including road, cyclocross, mountain, and even snow. She is currently a copy editor at SmartEtailing, a brand ambassador for Qloom bikewear, and a NICA coach for the East High School mountain bike team. As a woman in the cycling industry, She thinks it’s important to eliminate the intimidation women often feel with regards to how their bike works so they feel comfortable doing basic maintenance and repair if they need to. She’s passionate about getting women and girls hooked on cycling, whether that’s racing, weekend trips to Fruita, or daily commuting. This coming year, she’s hoping to be able to travel a bit more for races than she has in the past and is considering the benefits of actually training for cyclocross season.

Place I would most like to ride a bike…..Anywhere, really. Maybe not Kansas, but I hear there’s this one trail…
When I am not riding a bike…..I’m walking my little white dog, eating too many cookies, or planning a ride.
