Sarah got interested in cycling her senior year of college when she joined the university's club mountain bike team as the only woman on "knobbies". She has been riding and racing recreationally ever since. Sarah began working at the REI Santa Rosa (Calif.) store in 2006 and now works as the outreach specialist for the REI Tempe (Ariz.) store. She rides as an ambassador with the LUNA Chix Phoenix Mountain Bike Team, whose main goal is to inspire and support women learning to mountain bike and expand their riding skills. In addition to her time spent on the dirt, she also regularly commutes to work by bicycle.
