Wheelmen Rider Spotlight #4: Madison Giger

A throwback of Giger from 2011.

     In an attempt to become well acquainted with the 2014-15 Cal Poly San Luis Obispo Wheelmen community, Madison Giger marks the fourth rider spotlight. The following information was provided as a set list of questions, which Giger promptly answered. All responses are unedited. 

How long have you been a member of the Cal Poly San Luis Obispo Wheelmen or Wheelwomen?
Second year as a WHEELIEEEE!

What is your favorite part of the Wheelmen and cycling, in general?
Mountain bike + Lots of Downhill + Uphill that isn’t too steep = Bliss

What cycling disciplines are you involved with?
Mountain all the way…and I guess a little road. But I definitely have to be in the mood to even get my leg over my road bike.

Please describe your favorite San Luis Obispo ride.
Mountain: rock garden!
Road: See/Perfumo canyon (in the fall!)

What are you interested in accomplishing, with the Wheelmen, throughout 2014 and 2015?
Getting in some fun rides and getting more involved as the secretary of the Wheelmen

What are you studying at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo?
Kinesiology…fitness classes…cant get much better than that.

What is your favorite genre of music and your favorite song?
I go through fazes but my roommate and I can always get down to Timber.

Do you prefer “SLO Donut Company” or “Old West Cinnamon Rolls”?
Well…I would love, love, love either but I can’t eat them because I’m one of those weird gluten free people so I can’t answer that one.

Please provide us with one interesting fact about yourself.
 I’m a Swiss citizen and hope to live there and work for a bike shop in Lauterbrunnen for a while

Aside from cycling and education, what occupies your time?
Anything outside: hiking, backpacking, water polo, running (but only when my roommate can talk me into it), and eating…a lot of eating.
