Which of Stio's values personally align to you?

Outside is for Everyone, is a value that I feel strongly about and try to incorporate into my life by inspiring everyone to go outside. I love to share my passion for cycling with others, or join in their favorite outdoor activity. I believe everyone benefits from the outdoors and think it can help overcome and process life’s challenges.

Balance is something I've struggled to find but have a deep appreciation for now. Coming from professional racing, I definitely overdid a sport I truly loved and it has taken me too long to find that balance again. But now that I have, I am honored to be an ambassador for a company that understands balance and pushes for it!

How do you create balance in your daily life?

Finding balance for me is taking time to understand where I'm at and fitting in what’s gonna be the most fulfilling day to day. I am always dreaming up big adventures, but balance is fitting in the daily outdoor activities that build up to them without taking away from the drive to accomplish the bigger goal.

What is a bucket list activity you have yet to do or a place that you have yet to go?

Bikepack the Colorado Trail and potentially running the wilderness area sections.

What is your go-to workout music?

Talking Heads - Stop Making Sense

What is a piece of advice you would give to someone who wants to pursue a life of mountain sports and adventures?

Find the outdoor space that is accessible to you and do the activity that brings the biggest smile to your face and just keep chasing that feeling.
