Karen Pritchard   MoveUp Coaching

I am a cyclist that competes in many cycling disciplines. I have raced gravel, road, cyclocross and mountain bikes. I love all of it! My mission is to empower each individual with the knowledge and skills necessary to ride a bike for pleasure or to take their riding to the next level. Everyone starts somewhere and there are a lot of factors that go into being successful on the bike no matter what level you are at. I believe in setting goals both small and big. You dream it and you can do it!

Bio

I am just starting off in coaching other athletes but I am passionate about helping people learn or train for an event.
Personal Bio: Cycling for me is freedom. It calms me down, it puts all my thoughts in order, it helps me think through any stresses or concerns going on in my life. Cycling pushes me to become a stronger person physically and mentally. It helps me push away the negative thoughts and bring in the positive. Determination and perseverance are my strengths. When I am at the worst part of suffering during a race or training, I remember how lucky I am to be out here competing and I take a look around to see the beautiful land we get to enjoy. Those long hours on the bike are sometimes magical, my mind has time to put life in perspective.
