Meet Ambassador Candi

Candi Pennington
Let’s party in the woods!

I hail from: West Palm Beach, Florida

But I have roots in: Winston Salem, NC. I moved here in 2005 after 3 Cat. 5 hurricanes blew through Florida’s east coast.

I pay my rent/mortgage by: Teaching English to unruly and sometimes very sweet middle schoolers

My guilty pleasure is: Craft Beer … it’s plant based so I really don’t feel too guilty about drinking it

When I was little, I wanted to grow up and be: A Marine Biologist

Now that I’m all growed up, I really want to: Retire and travel to the best mountain biking destinations I can find

The best time I ever had on a bike was: Riding the Slim Shady trail in Sedona, AZ

The worst time I ever had on a bike was: An xc race in Virginia when it started pouring rain. What was supposed to be a 6 hour event turned into a 2 hour slip n slide and an hour bike wash to end the day.

I love being a Bell Joy Ride Ambassador because: It’s awesomely RAD to see more women on bikes and if they can conquer their fears, learn and grow as a rider then that’s just icing on the cake and who doesn’t love cake!

My mama always used to say: You are smart, strong and stubborn … stay that way!

I’ve always wanted a pet: Unicorn

Because: Everyone should experience a little magic every now and then.

Shout out to: All my RAD girlfriends who ride bikes/the Boone NC mountain bike community who continues to support women/girls on mountain bikes/my trail advocacy group in Winston Salem(FORBA) and other groups building and working on trail sustainability.

Because: These people represent some of the reasons why I keep riding!
