We love our Thunderbird Ambassadors, so we decided to introduce y'all to the members of our flock!
Here's a quick interview with Jenny!
Tell us a little about yourself:
If you've ever met me, you know I like bikes. I have bikes I will tell you all about (including one I built myself! I have a bike tattoo. I'm quite possibly typing this while sitting on a bike right now. I race XC Mountain Bike and XTERRA Off-Road triathlons, not just because I look amazing in Lycra (who doesn't?), but because mountain biking is incredibly fun, incredibly humbling, and incredibly inspiring, all at once!
Since I love bikes so much, I spend a lot of my time convincing others they're cool, too, especially other women. I am a ride leader for Ride Like a Girl, a program through the Austin Ridge Riders that gathers women of all abilities together to share some time on the trails. I am also a mentor for the Little Bellas program, which focuses on getting #moregirlsonbikes by providing ways for young girls to learn confidence and bravery through riding bikes.
My second favorite thing is dogs, of which I have two (the two best dogs in the whole world. You just try to tell them differently!) and when I'm not on my bike, I'm probably trail running or hiking with them all over Texas!
What's your next adventure?
This year my next biggest adventure is racing "The raddest race in the baddest place," the Maah Daah Hey 100. This is a 100-mile mountain bike race in the North Dakota badlands. In August. I am both stoked and super terrified because there is 11,000 feet of climbing. I might win a $700 payout. I might die. Time will tell.
What's your favorite Thunderbird bar?
I love the Almond Apricot Vanilla bar, but man, those Texas Maple Pecan ones are addictive, too...they taste like pecan pie!
Give me a follow on Instagram if you'd like! @jburd_
Just FYI- it's mostly bikes and dogs!
