Flatland Rider Kristen Ziegler

"I started to prove I can learn this.  I still have a long way but I want to learn all I can.  After a baby my body didn't snap back....I found a way to get peace and back to better shape.  I am riding and spending time with my husband and we enjoy it.  I have found something I may not be great at but I am still trying and living every second of it. "



"When you have a 3 year old you need time to relax.  I ride flat to relax.  I found myself when I started riding my bike.  I haven't been doing it that long but I enjoy it.  
My husband has been into bikes and I was never really interested.  Three years ago today I was in a hospital bed, my heart beating so fast that is was about to shut down.  I had to have a cardiac ablation and since then have been worried about working out of doing anything to strenuous..."  



"...We had a BMX Fest last year that my husband put on and we had some flatlanders come from Colorado, Jason King, Josh Hansen and a guy from here that we ride with now almost every weekend when its nice.  I didn't even really know what flatland was until that day.  They came out and I snapped photos like crazy.  I couldn't stop talking about it.  With in a week or two I had my bike. I was out working every night after I got off work and my daughter went to bed. It was a drug, something I needed to do.  It's what makes me amazing.  I feel amazing when I ride and after I ride.  I now ride to prove after all that has happened I can still do what I need to do and that's to be myself. "
