Ann Miers

Reno, Nevada

Ann is a wife and mom to two active young boys and when she is not at lacrosse practice, running the pooches, making sure a patient’s pearly whites are healthy and sparking clean, heading up her sons lacrosse team, spending time volunteering at her other son’s bike races, hosting SHREDLY trunk shows, or cheering her husband on for his many bike races, she is riding her own bike with SHREDLY wearing gal pals. She also enjoys baking and cooking gourmet meals (a habit her family gives her grief about for making dinner complicated). Ann’s humor can be appreciated by viewing the Mier’s collection of funny themed Christmas cards from years past where the entire family has been known to dress in costume.

What is your favorite thing to do in SHREDLY that is not on two wheels?PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING! I paddleboard, golf, hike, scream at lacrosse matches, run my two wild Weimaraner dogs and just walk around looking cool…the list is endless.

How many days a year do you think you wear your SHREDLY?
Better question would have been “How many days do you not wear SHREDLYs?”  They truly are my go-to from the second it warms up until I have to pack them away for the season.

What is your favorite pattern?
I have to say the MAMA, with the NIKKI runner-up. However, when on the trail, the NIKKI get’s the most “oh my gosh those are the cutest shorts ever!” comments.

What is your all-time favorite trail to ride?
That is a tough one, I live at the base of Lake Tahoe area so we have so many trails around here, most of them are great unless you come across a cranky reality star who lives by one, then it’s a total buzz kill!  Booooo 😉

What is your day job?
I am a dental hygienist and love it! I’m a Chatty Cathy so it’s the perfect profession for me. Ha, a captive audience.

What is your dream job?
I love to bake and I love good coffee. There is an old tiny stone house in my neighborhood that is abandoned. I would love to take that and make it in to a cool coffee hang out where people could ride their bikes to. But then my husband reminds me that most bakers have to get up around 3 am to start their day, so that probably would not be my dream job then, I like sleep.

What do you think the secret to happiness is?
On a daily basis for my kids not fight and keep their rooms clean! Ha,ha. I am becoming my mother all over again! I honestly don’t know. I am so blessed with an amazing husband and two really good kids, we are all healthy and happy and I can’t ask for anything more than that.
