What I love most about cycling are the adventures the bike always takes you on and the amazing people you meet along the way. The smiles, the laughter, the life-long friends who are always encouraging you to do your best and so excited when you succeed. I love the adrenaline rush you feel while racing and the sense of accomplishment you get when all your hard work pays off.

I love seeing more and more girls getting on bikes every year and knowing that there is a brand supported by women for women that we can 100% trust is so encouraging for women in this sport.

|What are the top 3 things on your bucket list?|
|Who taught you how to ride a bike/ got you into the sport of cycling?|
Both my parents Robert Naughton and Amber Tinstman taught me how to ride a bike when I was probably 3 years old. They put me in Moto gear and took me to the top of a hill and that’s how I learned. Growing up, I didn’t like riding my bike but about 3 years ago I was talked into participating in the NICA series. I ended up falling in love with riding and the rest is history. I cannot imagine what my life would be like if hadn’t found a love for cycling, it has impacted me in so many good ways and I am so thankful for it and thankful that my parents never gave up on trying to get me to like riding my bike.
|Have you taught anyone how to ride a bike or introduced someone to the sport?|
I haven’t taught someone how to ride a bike or really introduced anyone to the sport but at my high school races I have had parents come up to me saying I truly inspired them and their little girl who now wants to race NICA when she is old enough.
|How do you plan to pass on your love of cycling in 2019 and beyond?|
I really want to figure out a way to help make girls cycling even bigger and better. I haven’t figured it out yet, but I’m always brainstorming.
