Meet Lindsy Campbell
Lindsy is our well deserved rider of the month. She has excelled not only in the collegiate community, she has done well in Montana as well. Her enthusiasm, free spirit, and enthusiasm for cycling is infectious. We are so glad she rides for NRO! Thanks Lindsy!
Here's a little bit about her...
First time you knew you had bike fever?
I think it was my seventh birthday when I got my first "real" bike. It was a red Trek with gold cougar paws on it. The best part of the present was a book that my dad wrote called "Little Red Riding Cap" which was a spin off of "Little Red Riding Hood". In the book I was the heroine who wore a red baseball cap backwards instead of a hood and beat up on the big bad wolf in a number ways before riding away like badass on my bicycle. I was such a tomboy... still am.
Most memorable ride:
Just a couple of weeks ago I was visiting my sister in Rising Sun, GNP. I brought my bike and decided to ride back to my car in C-Falls on the last day. I took the long way through East Glacier not realizing how far it was. I completed the 130 mile ride nine hours later (there was a head wind the whole way) totally exhausted, starving, and really sunburnt. It was a good time.
Saguaro East outside of Tucson, AZ. It's like single track for a road bicycle.
My favorite bike is one that don't have yet but will own someday. Not sure on the details right now but it will be light and quick and will win lots of races.
Who and/or what inspires you?:
Lots of things but mostly having so many great friends to train with. Living with two other really motivated athletes has been very helpful. When you don't have to sneak around at 5:30 am because the rest of the house is up grinding coffee and getting ready for their first workout everything is a lot easier!
