Jean Sheehan - Roll Model
Jean enjoys rides through the woods. Sometimes you'll see her challenging herself with technical features or by getting ready for a race. Sometimes you'll see her riding with her husband, or at a ladies group ride for exercise and socialization.
Jean began mountain biking in 2015 taking small steps that the first year getting used to riding in the woods. She discovered a ladies group ride through GROC and found a great environment for developing skills with peers and having a great time doing it. Soon she got involved with racing some local races which helped develop even more skills. Jean's interest in biking continues to grow. Not a huge fan of the dark or the cold, but in 2019 she found herself riding a fat bike so she could ride in the snow and year-round.
Her favorite places to ride outside of Rochester are Allegrippis (Raystown Lake) Pennsylvania and Kingdom Trails in Vermont. She hopes she can encourage other girls/ladies to ride bikes on the trails and see them develop a love for riding.
When she and her husband Todd aren’t riding, she plays soccer, pickleball, Ultimate, and walking their dog Stormy.
