Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

Born in Calgary, Alberta, Allison Beverage grew up racing on the track and by 2011 was a top rider on the Canadian national team. In the following years, she became a key member of Canada’s World Cup and Pan American winning Team Pursuit squad. In her Olympic debut in Rio, Beveridge was part of Canada’s bronze medal ride in the Team Pursuit alongside Jasmin Glaesser, Georgia Simmerling, Laura Brown and future Rally Cycling teammate Kirsti Lay. In 2017, Beveridge will transition her track speed to the road in races throughout North America.

What inspired you to ride?

Both my older sisters had been cyclists, so I was pretty familiar with the cycling community and sport. I loved to be outside and loved the speed of having wheels underneath me.

Racing obstacle you overcame?

In the months leading up to Rio, I suffered an injury to my shoulder area that might have jeopardized my ability to ride in the summer Olympics. While I was not able to rectify the damage, which eventually required surgery, I was able to manage my training and remain tough mentally and physically.

Favorite cheat meal?

Burger and fries.

Favorite healthy meal or snack?

Smoothies. My latest creation is spinach, cherry/berry mix, almond butter, almond milk and plain yogurt.

Tip for staying healthy?

Get outside and everything in moderation.

What motivates you to ride?

I love to see the world on my bike. Racing has always been a big part of my life and motivates me to be the best I can be at any given moment. I also enjoy the strategy of racing and the opportunity to ride in remarkable locations.
