Why BYKlyn? BYKlyn embodies a synthesis of my two passions, the borough and culture I grew up in and high intensity endurance training. Every group of riders that fills the BYKbox feels like old friends coming together with a common goal - improvement through grit, sweat, and hard work.
What’s your class really like: Whether you're a seasoned cyclist or a beginner, I will challenge you. I encourage you to tune into your body and control ride and pace. I aim to inspire you to push past your comfort zone.
What’s your music vibe: Think broad range: from infectious electronic beats, pop, rock, and hip hop, to reggaeton, bachata and other Latin pop mixes. Maybe Deorro and Tiesto, throwback DJs like Robert Miles and Darude and plenty of Avicii, Martin Garrix, David Guetta, Gaga, Bey-ce, Rihanna, Drake, etc. So much good music out there that inspires!
Life beyond the BYKbox: When not riding, in or outside, I work for a human rights litigation NGO. I support a broad range of impact litigation aimed at improving national standards for protecting human rights and uphold the rule of law around the world. Read and ride, y'all!!
Anything else you want us to know:
Last year I qualified for my first ever NYC marathon, only to get injured. The goal now is to rebuild and strategize for next year and avoide past mistakes (like running with injuries!). Meanwhile, I'm determined to get many more road miles on two wheels and welcome riding partners to join me! Oh and I like to kick and punch things, taekwondo did the trick for kicking for a few years, and I'm stoked to get into some boxing classes soon to explore that sweet punch flavor!
