#200women200miles: Megan Hottman

Megan is a lawyer. She is a cycling advocate and team leader. She is a finisher of the Dirty Kanza 100!

Tell us about your biking: I ride ALLLLLL the bikes  My stable includes MTB, CX (one is a SS), Road bike, TT bike, Track bike and fat bike. All Cannondales except for my track bike and Spot CX belt drive. Plus my 1995 Bridgestone commuter (first “real” bike I got – bought it when I was 15!). I started road racing around 2002-2003 and raced road and then track through 2011. I began switching to more CX and gravel races in 2012-2013 and am firmly hooked on the long distance stuff now. Long gravel races like Kanza and also Ironman triathlons – I just completed my second IM a few weeks ago. Beyond riding for fitness and fun, I also began using my bikes for transportation in earnest in 2012… I ride to work, for groceries, to the bank, library, hair salon, you name it … I LOVE the days my car never leaves the garage. I enjoy riding bikes in a kit but also in jeans and a dress coat too. I think it’s good for motorists to see us in all forms of cycling.
