Born to a roadie of the 70’s and denied that BMX bike she always wanted, Liz bought her first mountain bike back in 1994. After a life changing cross-country hiking trip in 1999, a true love of the outdoors and mountain biking was formed. The bond was strengthened in 2001 through the introduction of Steve and Saucon Valley Bikes.  Since that time, biking has truly become a means to adventure.  Liz has competed in both mountain biking and cyclocross racing off and on for over 12 years.  The pinnacle of her racing (thus far) was finishing in the top 3 at the mountain bike national championships in 2013.  As will all things, Liz’s cycling habits have evolved and she spends many hours riding now on the road and on gravel paths and roads.  A huge fan of “mixed media” rides, her idea of  a great day is riding a mix of singletrack, dirt, gravel and pavement all in one ride.  In 2015, in honor of her grandfather and way too many other people to count, Liz embarked on her first (of what will be many) Pennsylvania Perimeter Ride Against Cancer, a 6 day 500+ mile event.  Always down for a good cause, Liz will continue to promote positive causes and positive people.
