Motivational Monday Molly

Motivational Monday with Molly in Charlotte

What is your name and location?

Molly in Charlotte, NC

What type of cycling do you enjoy?

Road

What is your first cycling memory?

Teaching myself how to ride a bike in my driveway when I was 5 or 6. It was too big for me and there were no training wheels, I stayed out until it was dark, determined to learn to ride it, and I did!

Who inspires you to ride? Better yet, why?

I’m part of a women’s triathlon group, Tri It for Life, that mentors and trains women to compete their first sprint triathlon. These women constantly inspire me to work harder and be better in all aspects of my life, not just cycling.

What has been your best moment on the bike so far this year?

For the second year in a row, I rode in 24 Hours of Booty, a 24 hour biking event to raise money for cancer research and awareness. My sister and I rode together to honor our Mom.

Tell us what you ride

I have a 2010 Trek Madone 4.5 and a 2009 Gary Fisher Piranha (I dabble in mountain biking)
