Fran fell in love with cycling in college after an ACL injury ended her gymnastics career. For rehab, her doctor would only let her exercise by riding a stationary bike. Fran did this throughout the long Minnesota winter and by spring decided this bike thing might not be too bad. She bought her first road bike and started commuting to campus. From there, her love for the sport grew exponentially. Fran moved to DC in 2009 to pursue a grad degree in city planning and real estate development. In addition to her studies, she found time to start racing with a small team and co-founded a company called Venture Point that led weekend cycling trips throughout the Mid Atlantic region. During the last couple of years, Fran has enjoyed learning to ride and race on gravel and takes every opportunity to spend quality time on her bike in the woods. For her day job, Fran works for US Bank in affordable housing and community development. She is an ardent dog lover and has a rambunctious pitbull named Bella.
