Angie grew up playing soccer and running. But, after her 3rd knee surgery in 2012, she learned her right knee was extremely arthritic. She turned to cycling to prolong the time before she would need a knee replacement. At first it was mostly short solo rides or with her husband, but she was driven to compete. She learned about Aquabikes (a triathalon minus the running portion) and competed in a couple races in 2014. It was fun, but a bit underwhelming for her. Also in 2014, a friend convinced Angie to participate in the annual Make-A-Wish bike ride, a 300-mile/3-day charity ride that raises funds for the Make-A-Wish foundation. She fell in love with the cause and the event, and cherished the community of cyclists that she began to meet. Soon, Angie learned about the world of racing bikes and entered her first criterium race in 2016. She was hooked! Angie joined Team Clark Logic that year and has enjoyed racing criteriums and road races with teammates ever since. In 2019 she started racing gravel and recently joined the community of fat-bikers. She continues to participate in the Make-A-Wish ride every year, and 2020 will be her 7th year. You might also see Angie teaching spinning classes at West Hills Athletic Club.
