Amy O'Connell

I hail from:
Portland, Oregon via Petaluma, California and Detroit, Michigan.

But I am most at home:
In the mountains and anywhere that involves the ocean.

I pay my bills by:
Working for an Ad Marketing Agency in Portland...and only so I can play more.

I never leave home without:
Giving my man a squeeze.

My three favorite pieces of Kitsbow kit are:
My Women's RG shorts, Women's Base Short and my Drifter Jeans. Special shout out to my Icon and Merino Hoodie (because it's Portland, yo).

I love them because:
I can wear my RG and Drifters to work after my bike commute and no one looks at me funny for wearing 'bike casual' to the office.

You see this scar? I got this when I:
Let's not re-hash falling into potholes, ok?

The closest I ever came to dying was:
I grew up in the 80's, so there were many. What happened in the 80's...

The closest I’ve been to complete and profound enlightenment was:
Each time I have the opportunity to experience the evening stars and sunrises in the backcountry.

My favorite place to ride (that I am willing to tell you about) is:
Good ole' Trione Annadel State in Santa Rosa, California is my favorite. Sandy Ridge near Mt. Hood is right near the top as well.

My favorite secret spot is:
What secret spot? Nice try!

If I ever won an Oscar, my 10-word speech would go like this:
Thanks to all my bike mentors for being helpful, patient and kind.

Lastly, shout out to:
All the late bloomers out there! IT's never too late to start adventuring, finding something you love and that challenges you. You don't have to be a shredder to be a badass! Be someone's inspiration!

You can.
