“Cycling 100% has changed my life. But I changed my life. That is the power that cycling gives to you.” - Mikaela Martin
Meet our second feature in our “Behind the Wheel Series,” Mikaela Martin. A formidable cyclist, Mikaela rarely brags about her greatness. Rather, she spends her time fostering the warm communal environment of KRT/QRT. Mikaela is intentional about showing new cyclists the ropes and encourages Queens to push beyond their limits. Other times she’s sneaking off with the “Bad Decision Crew” for side adventures.

Rhode Island native and child of the outdoors, growing up Mikaela never participated in organized sports. As a young adult, didn’t feel comfortable in gyms because she never felt like she belonged. Despite her dad being a cyclist, Mikaela didn’t find cycling until her late 30s.
