I'm Christina, but you can call me Tina. Originally from Boston, I found my love for biking during college as a practical means of transportation. Fast forward to my mid-late twenties, I was introduced to the world of mountain biking, and let me tell you, it hooked me like nothing else!

From bike commuting to pedicab driving and dipping my toes into amateur enduro racing, I've explored various facets of two-wheeled adventures. These days, you'll often find me leading a ladies ride or at a local mountain bike event. Oh and you'll always hear me 'yeww-ing' on every descent!

Having thrown myself into the sport headfirst (quite literally at times), I've learned countless lessons the hard way and encountered my fair share of injuries. Now, I'm passionate about mentoring others, sharing the 'what not to do's', and ensuring everyone has a blast on the trails. For me, it's all about the community and giving back to the networks that make our adventures possible. Speaking of which, have you volunteered yet? I'm actively involved with the Vermont Mountain Bike Association (VMBA) and lead women's rides with Ranch Camp, a local bike shop in Stowe, VT. This season, I'm committed to attending even more local trail days and hope to inspire more women to join me!

Thanks for taking the time to read my bio. Please don't hesitate to say hi if you spot me out on the trails. I'm always up for trail chats and maple syrup breaks!

Cheers :)
