Alicia has lived in Charlotte for 10 years after growing up in the Boston area and living near Asheville for 4 years. She found a passion for road cycling with her husband and his family and needed a challenge for the days she couldn’t hit the pavement. Her drive to ride brought her into the world of indoor cycling where she found a great opportunity to become a stronger rider. She began training to teach at Ride or Die last December.
When you clip in for Alicia’s class you can expect a motivating, ass-kicking party on a bike with a mix of pop and rock music. She thrives on the beat and is an absolute music junkie. Off the bike, Alicia runs a photography business and is a project manager for a software company. She and her husband have 2 giant dogs and can usually be found hanging out at the house or on their patio drinking way too much coffee.
