About

Hello! I’m an ultra-endurance cyclist named Chase. I hated my name as a kid, but as an adult, I’ve decided it fits what makes me tick quite well: the pursuit of health and happiness through outdoor adventure. Join me on AZ Bike Girl so we can chase down the outdoor adventure dream together! Read about my favorite gear, the recipes I create to fuel long miles, the books I read for motivation, and–best of all–learn from all the mistakes I make along the way.

The alpine views kept me smiling on a long day of high elevation training up and over the notorious Blixt Pass in Telluride, CO.
