I am Paige

I have always had an athletic background, primarily in running. I ran on scholarship to a NCAA II University for cross country and track. After college, I continued to race at a competitive and elite level for the next 8 years as well as dabble in some ultra runs. During the pandemic in 2021, all my running races were canceled. I had also been struggling with injuries, so I decided to start cycling as a form of cross training. It turns out, I ended up falling in love with cycling and also discovered a greater passion and talent for the sport. After riding for about 3-4 months for fun, I decided it would be a good idea to challenge myself. I went from no cycling to completing a 200 mile ride and an in real life (IRL) Everest in a matter of 4 months. I accomplished all of that without any power data and on a bike I bought from an old coach for $100. 

After this, I realized I was an endurance junkie and decided to fully commit to cycling in May of 2021. In August 2021, I had my first mass start race at Gravel Worlds and the rest is history. Through my experiences this last year in my first season, I decided I wanted to share my journey in hopes to get more people and in particular, women, on bikes. As many of you already know, this sport is very intimidating from the technical side of things because of the gender disparity in this sport. We need more butts on bikes and this is possible when people are approachable,  knowledge is made accessible and you have good mentors. I went from a total newb to competing at the pro level all within a season. I have learned so much already and cannot wait to keep learning new things. If you would like to join me on my crazy journey, please do! If there is anything I can do to help you accomplish your goals, let me know.
