Who We Are MCBC Welcomes Annabel Heinemann to the Board
We are thrilled to welcome Annabel Heinemann to the MCBC Board of Directors. We asked Annabel to tell us a little more about herself and why she rides.
I’ve lived in Strawberry for the last 10 years with my husband and 3 teenage daughters. We all spend a lot of time on bikes – mountain, road and recently a little gravel. I love adventure riding and I try to always have a goal of a race or a long ride to keep me motivated. Two of my daughters rode for NorCal with Redwood High, where I am also a coach for the team. I’ve worked in the outdoor industry for most of my career, the last 10 years at Mountain Hardwear where I manage our international business. I also spend a lot of time on skis – alpine, back country and a bit of nordic. I’ve been a ski patroller for many years, including the last 20 at Palisades Tahoe. I love getting outside with friends and family in our amazing surroundings, and am excited to work with MCBC to help support all aspects of cycling in Marin and beyond.
