Emily started riding in 2003 after her brother, Matt, helped her pick out her first mountain bike – a Specialized Rockhopper. She quickly fell in love with the sport, riding with friends and the University of South Carolina’s cycling club. In early 2008 she moved back to the DC area where she started racing road, but after entering the 2008 Greenbrier Challenge “for fun” Emily decided she preferred racing on dirt and rocks better than asphalt and completed her first full season as a Cat 2 Mountain Biker in 2009. Emily also commutes by bike daily from Arlington, VA to Silver Spring, MD as part of The Bike Lane‘s “Go By Bike” Challenge.
