About the Publisher:
Trish Albert lives in Atlanta, GA. She is a Cat. 3
Road Racer, Sport Mountain Biker, and Women's A/Cat. 3 Cyclocross racer.
I have had a life long passion for horses. Growing up, I showed
American Saddlebreds at Cleveland Park Stables in Greenville, SC. While
at Clemson University, I started to show Hunter/Jumper horses and spent
several years on the A circuit and BRHJA and PSJ circuits in the
Carolinas. I currently ride at an event barn and enjoy hunter paces,
long trail rides, and bumming around the barn.
My other passion is cycling. I race for
Sorella Cycling. I have been
ranked in the Top 10 nationally in Cat. 2 MTB/XC in the past was Number
1 in May 2003. In 2010 and 2011, I was second overall in the
Georgia Championship Series in
Cat. 2 Women. I'm also a Cat. 3 cyclcross racer and enjoy spending a
painful 45 minutes with the Women's A ladies every Sunday in the fall.
I'm the Media Director for the
Georgia Cyclocross Series. I am "retired" from road racing although
I still hold my Cat. 3 there and a Cat. 4 on the track.
Cycling is a stress reliever. Except for the feeling of sailing over a
jump on a horse, there is nothing like the freedom I feel when I'm on a
long downhill after the climb to the top.
When not riding horses or bikes, I enjoy reading, flopping on the couch,
collecting model horses, spending time with friends, and photography. I
also enjoy spending time with my husband, who is a Cat. 3 roadie.
Southeastern Cycling was founded in 1996 when there were very few
resources on-line for mountain bikers. Back then, it was called
Charlotte MTB On-line and later expanded to include Columbia (SC) MTB
On-line. The main services were a comprehensive trail and a shop listing
for both cities. In 1998, I relocated to Atlanta, GA and shifted the
focus of the website to the ATL. Shortly after my move, this site became
Southeastern Cycling. Today, SE Cycling provides race coverage, race
reports and photos, race listings, event happenings, mountain bike trail
listings, and much more for the Georgia area. Carolinas, Tennessee, and
Alabama coverage is also kept up to date as much as possible.
Southeastern Cycling is always looking for writers and photographers.
