My bike is my psychotherapist, physical therapist, and social director. For me, there is nothing like the escape of riding a bike with my friends from the HB community - my cycling crew and family! Come ride with us. Whether you are a recreational or competitive rider, you’ll find we are a very welcoming community with members from all walks of life who are just passionate about cycling!
I am a keen cyclist and endurance athlete. For several years now, I have been one of HbCC's Coffee Crew ride leaders which rides out of the Hb Summit shop on Saturday morning. While most of my miles are on the road, I enjoy ‘all things bicycle’...and am happy on single track and gravel rides too!

I bike. I started as a child (pink dirt bike, then a 10-speed w/ a basket for my paper route). I continued to ride to class in college; the Syracuse snow was no match for me. I commuted to work on my trusty 20 year old Giant steel frame hybrid when I lived in NYC, tackling all potholes on the way. Now in the 'burbs I've found a cycling home with HbW & HbCC. I also play tennis & volleyball. I am a sound designer, own 15 pairs of headphones & obsess over details...this Virgo loves every bike app's charts, stats & data!
I initially started cycling in order to honor a loved one through a charity ride. I did raise a good amount of money that day, but I was the one who really benefited by discovering cycling! I never enjoyed any exercise until I discovered the challenge and exhilaration of cycling and it’s changed my life. Becoming involved with Hb has taken this all to another level because it’s such a fantastic, motivating, and supportive group that has become like another family to me.
As a kid, I considered my bike a route to independence - often riding into town with my best friend on warm summer weekends to get a slice of pizza. Once I started driving, the bike was sadly idle in the garage. About ten years ago, I got back on the saddle as one of the required three disciplines for triathlon. I found that my strongest (and most enjoyed) discipline was cycling, and after a few years of competing, I realized that all I really wanted to do was ride my bike! Since joining the club a few years ago, I have gained a great circle of friends, found camaraderie on the bike, to get up those hills and have achieved some exciting cycling goals, like finishing my first century ride! You will find me at the Summit shop on most Thursdays in the summer at ladies night either participating or leading the C-level group.
Director of Cycletta
My cycling passion started with the 2014 ADA Tour De Cure metric century (62.5 miles)... more distance meant more donations but it also meant getting on a road bike for the first time. I immediately fell in love with all things CYCLING: t he challenges both mental and physical, a new family activity, new friends and the HbW and HbCC community. Skiing will always be my #1 passion but cycling is a close second.
Board Member At Large
I started cycling in earnest ten years as part of a company charity ride. Finishing that ride and smelling the salt air of the ocean had me hooked. Now an avid cyclist, I enjoy group rides to the coffee shop (as long as it is many miles away and preferably not a Starbucks), the occasional race (competing in time trials this year) and a gravel grinder or two. Being out on the bike with friends or occasionally solo is one of my favorite and most peaceful things to do.
Board Member At Large
I have been a member of HBW/ HBCC since 2014 and credit the bike club with being a “life changing experience.” I love leading and participating in rides, both with the club as well as with my husband, Rick. There is no better way to see the world up close and personal than on a bike!
