Twoyears ago, I fell in love with the beautiful sport of cycling. I knew after my very first ride that it would become a new passion for me! I have been a team-oriented athlete since I was young and cycling helped me discover a new aspect of myself. I’m always working to surpass myself and to beat my own results. My team, now, is my bike—It’s up to me to decide how far I will push my limit!
In 2018, I challenged myself to complete my first Triathlon in Oliver, BC. Not being a natural swimmer, I had 5 months to learn how to swim. I hit the pool few times a week and was able to successfully cross the finish line. It soon became a second passion for me and I gave myself the goal to complete one triathlon per year.
“I can, and I will” is one of my favorite quotes. If you believe in yourself, establish a plan and work hard, you can do whatever you want. There’s no limit as long as you put the effort in.
For me cycling is a way to connect with the community and meet passionate people on the road. It’s also a way to escape the routine by reenergizing myself with some fresh air and beautiful scenery while keeping a peaceful mind. During the summer, you can find me on the road multiple times a week. In the winter, I practice on my SWIFT to keep fresh for the next season.
Being from Magog, Quebec, it’s an honor for me to represent the PEPPERMINT brand in Vancouver and around the world through different bike trips. It’s really important for me to “Ride with Style” while remaining comfortable. PEPPERMINT does an amazing job by offering products that women are proud to wear and makes them feel beautiful. I am thankful to be part of PEPPERMINT Collective and I hope to see you soon on the road.
