My name is Liz Reap Carlson, and I’m a cyclist with Black Dog Professional Cycling who competes for the United States National Team.
I started as a kid who loved riding her bike, then became a tourist, panniers and all. In the mid-90’s, I started mountain bike racing, where I learned the best girls got fitness from the road. So I started road racing to help my mountain bike racing. Then I wanted to get better at all of it and found a group to train with in the off-season. In the Spring, we went to the local track to do interval work.
The rest, they say, is history.
I love riding trails, I train on the road and race on the track. Right now, besides training, I’m into turning people onto the sport, passion, hobby and lifestyle of cycling.
For me, cycling is any one and all of these things.
I’m also a writer, photographer, editor, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, cousin, dog owner and friend.
At any given time, I’m really good at one or two of these things, and try my best to maintain the rest.
Oh, and I sing.
