Robin began her cycling career over 15 years ago after graduating from the University of Tennessee with a degree in Sports Management.  She has raced on several professional teams throughout her career and is the former 2011 National Road Race Champion and a 2012 Olympic long team member.  In 2015 she retired from professional racing and took on a management role directing The Happy Tooth Pro Cycling Team. Presently, she is racing with a blind athlete on a tandem at the World-class level.

When not on the bike, her time is spent overseeing Revolution Coaching and the Women’s Cycling Association (WCA). The WCA’s mission is to grow and become a global movement for women’s equality in sport and life.  After several years of racing at the highest level, Robin saw the need to help women’s professional cycling become a stable platform for future cyclists. The main goal is help achieve equity and help people see the health benefits through riding bikes. “The sport of cycling will gain more fans and more exposure which will in turn give more women the opportunity to race.” Her passion for sport and the sport of cycling drives her to stay dedicated and lead the charge for a positive change.

Robin’s passion for teaching the sport of cycling and helping athletes achieve their athletic goals motivates her to work with various teams and athletes around the world.  Robin’s athletes range from junior women who want to learn the sport to masters cyclist who want to take their racing to the next level. Her coaching experience is vast. She currently manages a wide range of athletes from junior racers hoping to go to the Olympics to recreational cyclist looking to conquer their next century.

In her spare time, she dedicates her efforts to helping various philanthropic organizations such as the American Diabetes Association – Tour de Cure series. She also sits on the Board of Directors for the US Bicycling Hall of Fame and the Tour of America’s Dairyland Steering Committee.
