About Me: For me cycling began when I was 18, going to college in Fairbanks and without a car. I commuted all over that first summer and have been exploring by bike ever since. Winter biking in Fairbanks in the 90’s was a little different than it is today, I rode a skinny tire hybrid bike on hard packed mushing trails, stayed warm wearing bunny boots, and used pogies that were fleece lined and made for an ATV. And oh how I coveted the people with Snowcat rims, one of the original fat tires. I purchased my first snow bike in 2012 and haven’t looked back, I love the places it takes me and the conditions we can ride through. Long winter rides are my favorite, endurance racing is my idea of a good time, and I hope to see you out there on the trails this winter!
