Women in Cycling Profiles

Katherine Maine

When did you get your first bike?

I got my first bike with training wheels when I was 3. It was pink and purple with streamers 🙂

What made you get into cycling?

I got into cycling first through mountain bike, and having fun with my friends at a mountain bike camp.  I loved it and so kept riding and started racing locally just for fun. After a while I ended up transitioning into road where I started to really race.

What is one word that describes how you feel when you are riding your bike?

Free

Nicole Lentini

When did you get your first bike?

I think I had a Strawberry Shortcake banana seat bike when I was in grade 1 and then a trusty CCM throughout elementary school but my first real road bike was 2010.

What made you get into cycling?

I got into cycling to raise awareness about paediatric oncology through the Tour for Kids Cycling Adventure, as my daughter was born with Neuroblastoma.  After 400kms in 3 days, I was completely hooked and never looked back.

What is one word that describes how you feel when you are riding your bike?

Joy

Megan Miller

When did you start Tandem Riding?

I use to ride a single bike throughout my childhood. Though when I lost most of my vision, I was forced to stop cycling. In grade 9, I was introduced to a tandem bike which I fell in love with!

What is your favourite thing about Riding and/or why do you ride?

I love riding for a couple different reasons. Firstly, I love the speed! Being blind can make you feel slow and clumsy, but not when you are riding a tandem. I also love the fact that it is a team sport since both riders need to work together to be successful.

What is one word that describes how you feel when you are riding your bike? One word?

Free. All I need to think about is pedaling, all of my stress and worries can just go away. Plus, I’m usually too tired to think negatively, or think at all for that matter!

Kelly Lawson

When did you get your first bike?

I got my first bike when I was 3! It was a pink Barbie bike! Training wheels came off when I was 4.

What made you get into cycling?

When I was 9, I started riding with my dad on the trails! That’s where it all began. I raced my first O-Cup 3 years ago.

What is one word that describes how you feel when you are riding your bike?

When I’m riding my bike I feel free!
