It’s “Meet the Team” time again! This time we’re introducing Liz Nettles, a Cat 2 road racer who loves to compete. Liz has just been with us for a year, but she also raced for Recycled Cycles Racing 9 years ago as a Cat 4. We’re excited to hear she’ll be participating in the BikeMS ride this fall, since Recycled Cycles will be providing mechanical support! Don’t forget to check out the Recycled Cycles Racing blog and Facebook page for all the team’s latest news.

Why you started racing: I love to compete
Ever get pre-event nerves? How do you deal? Yes, sometimes, but I like a little nerves before a race.
How many hours do you log each week? 7 on a good week
Dream route – if you could pack up your bike and hit the road, where would we find you?
I would love to ride North toward Bellingham and Chuckanut Road. I look forward to doing the MS ride this September which uses those roads.
