Riding on Mount Jumbo


Joined Dirt Girls in 2002.

Favorite Ride: I have two. Sidewinder in early summer when it seems every flower is blooming and, Crazy Canyon to the top of Sentinel then all the way down Hidden Treasure (ending at Dairy Queen).

Best Dirt Girl Memory: The entire 2004 season. I had knee surgery in Feb. that year to repair my torn ACL. The genuine support and light hearted attitude kept me going back each week even when it hurt. This year I feel as good even better?) than new!

Regular Life: Along with Dirt Girl excursions, I enjoy mountain biking, hiking, skiing, and snowshoeing with my husband Randy and our two dogs. When I'm not playing outside, I work as a book designer (and am lucky to love what I do for a living).

Why I'm a Dirt Girl: Dirt Girls = Good exercise, good scenery, and best of all good company. The group is ever changing as new women join and old members move on. The Dirt Girl ride is ALWAYS one of the highlights of my week.
