Carey began developing her love for sport at an early age playing team athletics in high school, and field hockey on the Saskatchewan provincial team. Upon graduating, she was awarded university scholarships in North Dakota and at Simon of Fraser University for women’s fastball. She began mountain bike riding around age 35, when she moved to Vancouver Island and found a new passion on the trails in the forests. Her competitive side encouraged her to begin competing in cross country and cyclocross races. She won the Island Cup XC Series, and the Cross on the Rock Cyclocross Series multiple times. Career highlights include a 2016 XC Provincial Marathon win, and top ten finishes at the Canada Cup Cyclocross championships. Since she has a bit of an engine and a long haul hurt box, she loves marathon races and epic rides most. She has raced the BC Bike Race and ST6 stage races multiple times, winning masters, coed and enduro categories.
In addition to being a mother of two and a elementary/highschool teacher, Carey feels her role is to model healthy living for females who enjoy cycling, running, adventuring. Motivating by encouragement and example, she continues to challenge herself. It is the knowledge of living playfully, with goals in mind and friends at her side that she loves most. Currently riding for the BC Bike Race Ambassador team, she is enthusiastic about sharing her passion for riding with others, represent women in sport and to continuing to adventure ride and race her bike around the world.
