But where does she ride? Well her favorite ride seems to be either New Paltz, NY, Mohonk Mountain hill climb and Minnewaska hill climb. Minnewaska is a 5 mile climb

that averages 6%. Mohonk is a 2 mile climb that averages 8%. We ride a 28 mile

loop that hits both of them. There are so many great places to ride out here.

Ulster and Greene County are really the best places to ride. The Tri-Life Club comes up here to train from NYC.

Jeanne generally runs at Mohonk Mountain House and

Minnewaska State Park. These two places link together so you have endless trails.

Looking for a place to lift? Jeanne recommends the The

Chemical Brothers – anything

by them, great for bike training in the winter

Rage Against the Machine – I

place these in the middle of my workouts for some extra motivation

Madonna – the material girl

has some great beats

Matisyahu – love ska and

dancehall when running, he has such a positive message to his songs!

Pixies – love em!
