I'm so very thrilled to announce I have accepted a position with
Canyon Bikes USA: www.canyon.com/en/
My official title is Team Manager Customer Service.
Canyon has been around for over 30 years. They are based out of Koblenz Germany and will be launching here in the US. I will be heading up customer service for the US effective March 1st. I'll be in Germany for most of March training, then when I come back I'll be moving to the OC to be close to the corporate offices where I will be assigned.
I will continue to run the GGR LA chapter (all other chapters have their own directors) and drive back monthly for the club rides. I will still stay on the CORBA board for now as well as get involved with SHARE, the IMBA chapter for the OC. I will not be opening a GGR chapter in the OC...I will continue to send women living in the OC to our sister club and shop Girls ride 2 and G2 Bikes.
This is an opportunity of a lifetime for me to do what I love & and have so much passion for. I'm so very excited to brand Canyon in the US and be a part of a great company that engineers incredible bikes. I will still be involved as much as I can in the communities as an advocate for women mountain bikers, trail advocacy and riding and racing with all of YOU!
I thank everyone for your constant support, believing in me, my vision of getting more women on bikes and keeping them riding! I thank my inner circle for keeping this quiet and giving me direction and support every step of this process. The adventure is just beginning!
I'm so excited to ride new trails in the OC! So those who live there give me a ring and let's ride!
I will be spending less time with CORBA, so if you ride the Santa Monica Mountains.....CORBA could use you! CORBA is looking for 2017 Board members! corbamtb.com.
