Hey there! I’m Janis. At an early age, I won my first real bike at a Golden Easter Egg Hunt and the rest is history! I’ve managed to get in to all kinds of mischief over the years on two wheels. My bike and I took a break from each other when my kids were young, but thankfully that separation didn’t last too long! To celebrate my 40th birthday, I tried mountain biking and experienced the most epic fall! That rekindled my passion for cycling.
I’m a member of the Newmarket Eagles Cycling Club, and co-founded the Newmarket eGALS, an all female cycling group to promote and grow women’s cycling in York Region. I volunteer with the Canadian Mental Health Association York Region & Simcoe South to market & grow awareness, participation, and funding for their annual GTA-area ‘Ride Don’t Hide’ event in support of mental health! Cycling has also led me to triathlon. I plan to complete my first IRONMAN in Mont Tremblant this August! I’m super excited to join the esteemed Highgate Masters women’s racing team – here’s to a fun and exciting season on two wheels!
