Q&A with Stella
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT WORKING AT THE CYCLING HOUSE?
The places I see and the people I engage with while on Cycling House trips make for invaluable experiences that I continue to weave into my daily life remembering stories, rides, challenges and always fueling the fire for more.
I love the ride to Jalama Beach on our Solvang Trip. Rolling terrain and head or tailwinds always make for a rewarding day!
ONE OF THE BEST DAY'S YOU'VE EVER HAD ON THE BIKE
I’ve had some fantastic times descending The Whole Enchilada in Moab, Utah on my mountain bike; pushing through thick mud on my road bike during the Hell Ride in Missoula, MT; or just finding the legs to keep up on our weekly Wednesday Night Worlds group ride from shop in Whitefish (Great Northern Cycling and Ski).
Born and raised in Whitefish, MT, Stella developed a strong connection to the outdoors through countless hours of training for competitive cross-country skiing. Her skiing career took her to national and international competitions and eventually to Middlebury College in Vermont. She earned a degree in Film and Media from the liberal arts school and returned to Whitefish to regrow her roots. Stepping back from ski racing, Stella found a second love in cycling, both on road and trail. She currently lives in Whitefish, Montana and co-owns Great Northern Cycle & Ski, coaches the local junior ski race team, and guides Cycling House trips whenever she can.
