Charlotte’s always bouncing and humming as she prepares delicious meals early in the morning because she’s happy as a clam being in the mountains. She works night and day prior to the trip to make sure the delicious food can be readied in time and then comes out to shred with the team. Charlotte lives in Revelstoke, BC where her mountain bike sees plenty of love in the summer.
