Name: Caitlin Thompson
Occupation/Off-Bike Skills: I previously taught high school students math and now I work as an education consultant, helping schools and teachers create the inquiry-driven learning opportunities that they envision. I also started and currently run the Philadelphia chapter of Little Bellas. It’s my favorite way to #getmoregirlsonbikes!
Disciplines: I love cyclocross! I also enjoy riding mountain bikes and road bikes and occasionally do long-distance triathlons.
Cats or cat alternates: I’m sadly allergic to furry animals so I’ve been pet free since my fish passed away when I was a kid.
Favorite snacks: I love snacks! Mostly food that has a bit of chocolate, like a chocolate cherry Kind bar. And I’ll do anything for ice cream.
Why do you ride?
I ride bikes for the community, the fresh air, the health benefits, the endorphins, and the funny-looking outfits.
Bike career highlights:
I’ve completed 3 Ironmans, the most recent one was in 2017 before my toddler turned 2.
