I’ve loved to ride my bike for as long as I can remember! I believe I was called by God to ride my bike for His glory when I heard the Steven Curtis Chapman song “Do Everything” on the radio. The song is based on the verse Colossians 3:23. I started riding benefit rides at the age of 6. My biggest ride ever was a ride across the USA in 2014 when I was 9 years old. I did this ride with lovefar.org and it was a great adventure! I could tell stories for hours about this trip. So far I have rode my bike to raise over $20,000 for various charities. I must give all glory to God, because he gave me the ability to ride! When I was 9, I started racing road and cyclocross. Then when I was 11, I also started racing track. I still ride several local benefit rides every year and love to just go out riding on the backroads near my house.
My favorite race is probably the Winston Salem Cycling Classic because it’s my hometown race, it’s where I got my first ever payout, and I get to see almost all of the big continental pro racers race in person! I follow pro cycling online and watch every chance I get. If I’m not out riding you might find me watching the GCN or a race on Youtube. I hope to oneday have my own Youtube channel about cycling and I dream of racing in Europe one day! Even though I've been a "pretend" teammate for a couple years, I am VERY excited to officially be on team Mission Source this year with so many of my cycling buddies and look forward to learning more about how to ride road and track with teammates!!.
