RUCC Team

Our team consists of Ryerson students who are cyclists themselves, and we’re always looking for new riders to join the team. If you’re interested, shoot us an email.

I’m a “fifth” year computer engineering student at Ryerson. My main discipline is road cycling, although I am now in cahoots with mountain biking and trials (no trials bike yet though). I’m a big BikeShare enthusiast as well (those bikes are indestructible). Outside of the club I am big on full stack development and meeting new people at hackathons, conferences and elsewhere. In my personal time I’ll be in farmers markets, reading about data bases and hunting down free food. And, of course, cleaning my bikes.

I’m a fourth-year journalism student at Ryerson University. Being from a rural area, I’m more used to riding the hilly countryside, but I’m learning lots about navigating busy city streets. Often you can find me reporting local stories, leading a Brownies unit and playing clarinet in the university concert band. I love talking about history, living in the Maritimes and the great outdoors. Rides have always been one of my favourite ways to de-stress and have fun; I look forward to meeting you on the next one!

If bicycles were living beings, I’d have loved to be reincarnated as one in a future life. Hopefully, I can keep riding for decades to come, and rejoice in the feeling, unequaled by any other method of transportation, which is the simple yet beautiful transfer of human power to torque on two wheels. I enjoy riding with friends and in a competition/race, here and there. Most of all, cycling is a source of peace for me, a time to relax amidst an otherwise busy schedule. Hopefully, I can ride with as many RUCC members as possible this year.

I am in my second year of biomedical engineering at Ryerson University. Being fairly new to the city, I have found great fun in the networks of trails throughout Toronto. Whenever I’m not in the saddle, you will find me either hiking the Bruce Trail or playing the banjo. I have experience in triathlon and criterium racing, but can also appreciate a good social bike ride. Social rides are the best way to have fun, get outdoors and meet new people. Hope to see you soon!

Communications Co-lead

I’m a third-year nursing student at Ryerson. Since moving downtown, I’ve really come to appreciate cycling as a way to commute, exercise, and of course, meet new people on RUCC rides! Recently, I’ve also become a delivery courier where each shift teaches me more about the best ways to get around the city on two wheels. With one of my career interests being community health, I’m starting to get more involved in cycling advocacy with the aim of creating safer streets, healthier people, and a better environment. Outside of cycling, I also enjoy volunteering, gaming, and learning new languages :-)
