She/Her I'm a gentle force, willing to ride hard, stack hard and laugh hard! I'm an OT student, and love the overlap between bikes, community & advocacy. Bikes provide me with a sense of freedom, strength and resilience. This comes from being a part of an inclusive community such as Melburn Durt; finding a moving meditation; tapping into my own kind of feminity; developing both mechanical & technical skills; moving away from petro-carbon based transport; and unlocking a world of unbridled fun!
She/Her I have cycling in my mind 24/7! I ride with Durt because there is a very positive sense of community. I feel at home and comfortable.
She/Her I might not be the finest cyclist in the world, but I'm the most enthusiastic! I ride with Melburn Durt to build my skills and fitness on the bike, so I can ride more, and ride faster and stronger! Riding my bike is what my body wants to do. When we find what our bodies want to do, and let them do that, it's bloody magic.
She/Her I’m a mother to a beautiful toddler; always looking for the next adventure! I’ve always loved riding my bike and would often spend weekends riding with my husband. After we had our daughter in 2017 we were no longer able to ride together and I didn’t want to ride alone. I found the Durt crew and after my first trail ride I was hooked. Racing CX, riding trails, bike packing, I love it all.
She/Her I'm adventurous, honest, and little too brash. I ride with Melburn Durt because I love it! Riding durt creates a child-like sense of freedom and fun for me.
She/Her I’m an introverted, plant nerd and recycling enthusiast who loves riding bikes and people being kind to one another! I ride Durt because I love to ride my bike and learning new skills. I love that it doesn’t matter how I ride or what bike I’m on. It’s about the friendships and the community that this group creates.
She/Her I'm a friendly and enthusiastic bike rider and botany nerd. Finding Melburn Durt changed my life! Before joining Durt, I knew I liked bikes, but none of my friends shared my passion, and so I didn't ride nearly as much. When I found Durt, I quickly went from Merri Creek meanderer (still am) to cyclocross racer, mountain biker and badass long-distance bikepacker. I've never felt more empowered.
She/Her I'm a primary school teacher, gardener, trail runner, cyclist! I enjoy road and trail riding, and love exploring my world on two wheels. I ride to get outside, lose myself in nature, to challenge myself, but mostly - because of the people!
