Although Amanda learned to ride a bike at a young age like most kids, it wasn’t until her mid-20s that she started mountain biking.  Deciding that she wasn’t going to sit at home every weekend while her boyfriend went biking with his friends, she picked up a cheap used hardtail and took to the trails.  After four months of riding, she decided to upgrade and buy her first “real” mountain bike from SVB, which was a LIV Tempt 0.  After a few years, Amanda realized pedaling is overrated and bought a downhill bike.  These days, you’re just as likely to find Amanda on local XC trails, as you are to find her at Mountain Creek.  Amanda enjoys meeting new customers and helping them find the right bikes and gear for their individual purposes.

 

 

Year Born: Let’s just say I’m older than I look

Hair Color: Auburn

Eye Color: Green

Type of riding:  XC and DH

Favorite Place I’ve Ridden: Probably White Clay, but I have a special place in my heart for Green Lane

Why? White Clay is awesome and not too far away.  That said, Green Lane is my go-to for a short weeknight ride; it’s quiet and feels more secluded than it is since few people ride there.

Favorite Beverage: Water but fancy beer in a can is good, too!

Favorite Customer: Any chick looking for hard tail mountain bike

Why? Hard tails are underrated

Pet Peeve: Zip ties … don’t even get me started

Tunes: Cold War Kids, Fitz and the Tantrums, Cold War Kids, some singer/songwriter stuff

Perfect Pizza: Tomatoes!

Best Physical Feature: I’ve heard that it is my freakishly small hands, but I think that was sarcastic
