Ali Dickson

What is your Job?
I’m currently an Assistant Buyer for Nashbar and Performance clothing.

How long have you worked here?
I’ve been part of the Performance family for just over three and a half years.

Why do you ride a bike?
Mainly because I like to eat, but also because I’m an endurance junkie and enjoy pushing myself.

Where do your ride?
Mostly country roads around the triangle; the longer and smoother the better. For some cross riding and to mix things up I ride at Umstead.

What has been your favorite ride?
I think it was the first long ride I ever did. It was a beautiful day, my legs were fresh to start, good company and a solid workout. I nearly doubled the farthest distance I had ever ridden that day; 40ish to 75. That was the day I fell in love with cycling.

What do you ride?
Kestrel Evoke and a Scattante XRL Cross and Cervelo P2SL

What has been your biggest learn while riding?
Keep the rubber side down!

What is your favorite part of your bike?
The light blue saddle on the otherwise black/white/red bike because it's comfortable and it drives the elitists and perfectionists in the office crazy.
