Hometown: Burlington, VT

Hobbies: Anything to do with fitness and the outdoors: biking, walking, hiking, XC skiing, snowshoeing, trail running. Karyn also has a love for music and is a concert chaser.
Favorite Rides: All of Vermont! She commutes quite often by bike and has learned to conquer (and enjoy) Irish Hill Road on her route into Burlington. The southern Maine coast is always a favorite too – it’s really flat!
Current Bikes: Specialized Ruby Expert, Specialized Rockhopper 26. Her most missed bike that she wishes she never sold? Jake the Snake cyclocross commuter.
Bio: Karyn is a Vermonter who spends part of her summers in Old Orchard Beach, Maine. There, she enjoys biking daily to the ocean (depending upon the tides), to the lobster market to get fresh fish, or just taking in ocean views. Karyn spent most of her college years working multiple jobs in insurance sales, as a concierge for Vermont’s largest hotel chain, and in travel agency sales. She discovered both biking and spinning at the same time, and has spent the last 15 years teaching spinning in Vermont. She loves to transfer students from the spin studio to the great outdoors on bikes. She has run local town beginner clinics to get people comfortable with biking. Most of all, Karyn loves living in Vermont for the seasons and because her backyard is a big outdoor playground!
