Anything or anyone that is boring
Parking tickets
Flat tires in the middle of an awesome ride
Discussions about religion & politics

Heather lives in the moment. When she’s not living, breathing and eating cycling, she is reading, cooking, hanging out with friends, listening to music, going to art galleries, or exploring the great outdoors. Originally from the Southwest desert, she got her bachelor’s in biology / chemistry / nutrition from Southern Utah University. While there, she discovered mountain biking. Her real job is as a professional bike racer. She competes in national and regional Category 1 racing, and also works as a coach for other cyclists.  Though she’s moved 26 times in her life, she has fallen in love with the Pacific Northwest and hopes to stay put for a while.
