// Q&A with Megan 

Why cycling?

 

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!).

Favorite ride:

 

"10 Hills" Ride in Limoux, France

Career highlight:

 

Winning the 2016 World Tour

2019 goals:

 

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:

 

Everything!

 

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.
