Favorite Cycling quote/inspiration: "It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them.

Kate Phillips

My hometown: Rochester

Where I call home now: Still Rochester!

How I got into cycling: Right after I graduated college, I joined the Peace Corps and became a teacher in Madagascar for two years, and right after I returned from the Peace Corps, I got a 9-5 job that I did not like very much. I decided that even if I didn't like the job very much, I could enjoy my time directly before and after by biking to work, and that's when I got my first adult bike and started commuting. I was so much happier on days when I opted to ride rather than drive - it allowed me to unwind, connect with the outdoors, and disconnect from work. I still like to commute by bike as much as possible, and in more recent years I've been working towards commuting by bike all year. I also like to ride with my partner and friends, particularly in pursuit of ice cream, and more recently I've added learning to mountain bike with my dad and brother on Friday mornings.

My favorite roads to ride: I'm mostly a canal and rail trail rider, but I usually find myself winding my way through city streets or on Clover or Scottsville when I am on the roads.

My favorite trails to ride: I'm a big fan of the Auburn/Lehigh/Greenway trail system.

I most recently rode my: Hunter Green 2020 Trek Checkpoint ALR 5

My favorite bike ever is my: Hunter Green 2020 Trek Checkpoint ALR 5

I don’t leave for a ride without: Helmet.

Best Cycling advice: Have fun.

Favorite Cycling quote/inspiration: My favorite cycling inspiration is my friends at Full Moon Vista.
