For the last 16 years I have been passionate about various forms of off-road cycling, with a focus on mountain biking, fatbiking, bike packing and gravel riding. I ride almost all year, even with 4 very distinct season in Ottawa, Canada. I get out when it is +30C and also when it is -30C, and I motivate my friends to do the same! With my active involvement in the local mountain bike community through volunteer work with the Ottawa Mountain Bike Association and instructing with RideOttawa, I share my passion with so many riders!! I want to bring this passion to the Kona Ambassador program, and get people of all ages riding bikes and joining the growing riding community in Ottawa in whatever discipline they enjoy the most. Riding is so much more fun when you have others to enjoy it with and often people need a little nudge to get started!!!
