Susan Lynch is a three-time USA Cycling Cross Country champion and has finished first in her age group three times in the “Leadville 100,” a grueling 100-mile mountain biking race through rugged Rocky Mountain terrain. She competed in triathlons and duathlons for decades until doctors told her she couldn’t run because of osteoarthritis in her knees. Susan took up mountain biking and fell in love with the sport. Her first race was a 50-mile mountain biking race in Vermont where she took second place in her age group. She has since competed in the “Vermont 50” 14 times, winning 11 of these races in her age group. The proud mother of three athletic outdoorsmen, Charlie, Dave and Kevin, Susan finds great joy in nature and enjoys motivating people in their fitness goals as a spinning instructor.
