Motivational Monday with Jen Charrette
What’s your name and location?
What type of cycling do you enjoy?
Everything, but mountain biking is my passion.
What is your first cycling memory?
It was my first big outing with my parents. I was maybe 8 and we were riding on a highway overpass and I fell off the sidewalk and into the lane of traffic. I was okay but banged up. My parents took my over to get ice cream and all was good.
Who inspires you to ride, and better yet WHY?
Most of my motivation to ride comes internally. I love the sport and the way it makes me feel. But I have to say that as a Mom of a 6 year old that is obsessed with riding he nudges me when needed.
What has been your best moment on the bike so far this year?
I just got back from a week in Tucson getting in some base road miles. It was in the 70s and I got 200 miles in… so it is looking like a great year for biking.
