My name is Hannah Bergemann, and I'm a freeride mountain biker living in Bellingham, WA. I started riding when I received a hand-me-down mountain bike from my dad in high school and I've been hooked ever since. Being a freeride athlete involves a lot of traveling, filming media projects, attending events, & trail-building. In addition to being a freeride athlete, I work for transition bicycle company on the marketing team. One of my biggest goals in my career is to push the level of women's riding and help encourage more women and girls to pursue biking and action sports.

Early bird or night owl? Early bird (I love going to bed early, but I like sleeping in also...)
Coolest place you’ve ever woken up in? Lamayuru moonland in Ladakh, India
