// Q&A with Megan
I love cycling because every day on the bike is different; the terrain varies, the weather conditions change, you get to travel all over the world to race and meet amazing people along the way.
What's been your motivation/inspiration to push yourself:
Cycling engages me, because each day I have the ability to improve. I am always looking to be a little better every training ride (maybe not the recovery rides!).
"10 Hills" Ride in Limoux, France
Winning the 2016 World Tour
To contribute to the success of Team TIBCO.
When not riding, I like to...:
Spend time with my family, friends, and dog, cook and bake, yoga, and hike.
What's on your playlist:
Favorite post-ride food:
Recovery drink first! Burritos are a great go-to all-in-on meal.
What's your advice to aspiring cyclists?
The road to cycling success is never straight-forward, but keep pushing forward one pedal stroke at a time.
