Hey, My name is Alexis McDonald, but you can call me Lexi. My passion for biking started 7 years ago when I met the love of my life and eventual husband, Spencer Cruikshank. We have 3 trail dogs, who also have a passion for biking. You mention the word bike at our house, and pandemonium ensues.
I used to be a runner and ran the trails around the city before I found biking. I now use an all mountain Giant Liv Intrigue to navigate the trails around Saskatoon and the surrounding area. My favourite trails to ride always start at the Sutherland dog park and from there I can navigate the city.
As the secretary for the SMBTA, I would like to see an an established relationship between bikers, hikers, and other trail users alike. We all use the trails and I want to hear what different trail users want. I’d also love to get more women involved in trail building and maintaining in a comfortable environment where we can learn how to use the tools and have fun. Oh, and look for our merch that will be to come!!
My love for biking draws me to the mountains, and I love going on trips to bike destinations. We have biked all over BC, Alberta, Sask, Washington and Iceland. I’m always up for more trips with friends!!
I am a very bubbly and happy person to ride with, so if you ever see me on the trails, introduce yourself and let’s ride!
