Name: Kyla Brown
Role: Sales Consultant
Experience: I grew up being apart of the sporting community enjoying any sport that was outdoors. I grew into cycling after a long career as a running track athlete. I started commuting to work as a means of transport and my love for cycling grew. I started participating in local cycling events and fun cruises with friends on the weekend. I’m always looking for that next challenge or just a fun day out riding with friends. Cycling has pushed me to challenge myself in new ways, I started to compete in small triathlon events, and more recently became an Ironman 70.3 finisher. The community of cyclists I met along the way made it all that more enjoyable.
Expertise: Road and Fixie.
What do you love about bikes?: I love how cycling can bring a community together; bikes can bring you freedom however it also brings likeminded people together and that is what I love about bikes.
