02 Sep Motivational Monday with Mandy in Rome, GA
What is your name and location?
Mandy Loorham Rome, GA
What type of cycling do you enjoy?
What is your first cycling memory?
I was five or six and I had been learning to ride without training wheels. One Sunday my mom had gotten me ready for church in a nice white dress. I snuck out of the house and took my bike to the neighbor’s driveway and worked on my riding skills. I mastered my riding but got covered in dirt and grease. I went back into the house so proud. My mom took one look at me and flipped – so much for the white dress! I think I’ve been wearing dirt and grease ever since.
Who inspires you to ride? Better yet, why?
My husband and my boys – our whole famiy rides. If I can’t keep up I may miss something!
What has been your best moment on the bike so far this year?
As much as I love riding with my family – my favorite moments on my bike this year have been when I’m alone. When I can listen to the birds and the wind. I just take the time look around and just enjoy the trail.
Tell us what you ride
I ride a Giant Trance XO. She’s the little engine that could. The more I learn to trust her the easier the ride gets.
