Amanda began at Newington Bicycle in 2011 after graduating with a BA in English literature and a successful collegiate volleyball career at CCSU. As a triathlete she has completed two Ironman distance events with a PR of 11:54, six half-Iron distance races with a PR of 5:15, plus numerous sprint/olympic distance triathlons and running races from 5K to marathon distance.
As often as you'll see her on the sales floor, she is also working on modernizing our web and social presence. Her goal for the shop is to create a more women's friendly cycling community. In this pursuit in 2016 she helped launch an all new program for Newington Bicycle, The Women's Cycling Initiative. This Initiative is focused on increasing female ridership in the area and creating resources and opportunities for new female cyclists.
A triathlete at heart she recently began mountain biking and exploring Xterra Triathlons. In 2017 she'll be competing at the Xterra World Championships in Maui, Hawaii.
