“You got this!”

My MTB journey started when they built a mountain bike trail in my town, Mount Dora Florida. I was on an old giant we got for $50 at a yard sale… there might have been a couple of cuss words & tears BUT I wasn’t going to let it defeat me! I upgraded to a better bike and it was game on!

Now that I was hooked I needed to find other ladies to ride with because there were hardly any, so I started the Florida MTB Ladies! 6 years later we have over 700 members and are still growing!! We have weekly & monthly rides and sometimes we venture out of state!

There was something so AMAZING when it’s just you and your bike on the trail. Then there is “THAT” feature on the trail that you have been struggling with but one day you just clear it, best feeling EVER!! You can feel your confidence grow with every ride!

“All about that balance and the quest for smile miles.”

My Mountain Bike  journey started rough, like riding over a rock garden with very green legs. I had never thought once about riding til I met my then boyfriend, now husband at 19 years old. He rode by my work on a bmx bike and asked if I rode bikes. I laughed at him. I made every mistake possible and was beat up by the trail as a result. He was really cute and patient so I kept showing up. 

Over the years I met a lot of really cool friends that taught me proper techniques. These skills have really changed my confidence levels in going from survival in the woods to thriving. It’s been nearly 18 years since I started this journey and I absolutely love that feeling of conquering new features.

More so, I really love helping with the skills that leads to the confidence to concur their goals!
