Hi! My name is Krista and I love to ride my bike!  I grew up riding bikes, and I still ride for the same reasons: The freedom, the friendships, the adventure!  I picked up a mountain bike in the spring of 2011. A year later, I started leading my own beginner rides in Santa Cruz. I then got Wilderness First-Aid certified and I am now a certified Level 2 IMBA Instructor. I am also a Dirty Jane ambassador, helping inspire women to get out and ride, learn skills and gain confidence.
