Forty year old Hellen grew up in Uganda and moved to the U.S. when she was 23. She says that she rode a bicycle when she was young for her mental health. She first lived in Washington state when she came to the US and has been in Colorado for 15 years. She upgraded her bike recently, having graduated from Arapahoe Community College and landed a job as a lab tech at the Platte Valley Medical Center. She considers Lookout a short ride, having spent many rides heading to Jamestown from Boulder. Hellen has completed the Be Strong Boulder ride twice, Pedal the Plains ride once and has a goal of joining the Ride the Rockies in the future.
Thanks for talking with me, Hellen.
