Ellen is one of our featured winter commuters and avid winter cyclist.
Ellen is a teacher who lives in Calgary with her awesome family (which will grow by two very soon). Although Ellen grew up in Calgary, she spent most of her adult life living in Toronto, Vancouver, Fernie, and China, before moving back to Calgary 5 years ago.
She loves the feeling of empowered through her strength and endurance: Ellen has gone on numerous self-supported bike trips (including Vancouver to Tijuana and across the USA), and more recently she has completed two Ironman triathlons.
Ellen first owned a car when she was 34 years old – before that she relied fully on biking and public transportation to get around. After moving back to Calgary as an adult, Ellen first tried winter bike commuting and was pleased to discover how much fun it is!
