What is your name?
Julie in Cary, NC
What type of cycling do you enjoy?
Mountain biking and wafting on the greenways
What is your first cycling memory?
Learning to ride my brothers big Schwinn when I was five. It was the only bike we had at the time and it was way too big for me.
Who inspires you to ride? Better yet, why?
My 22 year old son. I love riding with him. It is one of the few times we get one on one. He is fast and loves to ride technical trails. I am a big scaredy cat when it comes to skinnies and jumps but he has patiently encouraged me and coached me.
What has been your best moment on the bike so far this year?
It would have to be when I rode through the state park and over the highway to have coffee at a cool downtown coffee shop with my daughter. I guess that’s why I love riding – it keeps me connected with nature, community, but most importantly my kids.
Tell us what you ride
My son gave me my bike several years ago. It is a Specialized Myka.
