Learn a bit more about Caitlin here:
1. Where did you grow up, and what brought you to Austin?
I grew up in Philadelphia, but came to Austin in June to take a drafting course at UT and decided to stay.
2. First cycling memory?
The ET ride at Universal Studios. I was six or so. I remember crying (a lot) in line because I had never ridden a bike without training wheels and I was convinced I'd have to during the ride.
After that I began riding with my Dad to baseball games in South Philly, I started out following alongside him on the sidewalk while he rode in the street.
