Why do you ride?
Riding brings all of my favourite things together. Friends, traveling, adventure and being outdoors. Throw in some mud and rain and that's my happy place.
Describe the best day you've had on a bike.
Getting lost at Hartland, Victoria in the pouring rain on a Team Alberta training camp group ride. By the end we were exhausted, soaked to the bone and covered in mud. The trails were more like rivers. It was awesome.
What's your nickname?
Abs or Babs. Either will get my attention.
What's your favourite local trail?
I love riding in Millcreek ravine, it's basically my backyard. I've spent a lot of time down there on the trails and know them well.
What's the best advice you've received?
Get the holeshot.
Who inspires you?
Catharine Pendrel and Emily Batty. Two Canadian women MTB'ers in the top 10 at Worlds. That's something I really admire.
What's your favourite post-ride meal?
Sushi with Yam Tempura. Potatoes and Cauliflower.
