I first met Caden Stockwell when one of our Wenatchee Outdoors team members bought a road bike from him.
We were coming back from skate skiing and Caden said he skate skis, too.
I learned that Caden is a determined athlete who enjoys a variety of activities but his favorite is road biking.
This guy doesn’t mess around when it comes to being competitive and driven. Whether it is mountain biking, skate skiing or road biking Caden brings his all to the table. He also cares a great deal about community and giving back, so I asked for an interview to learn more about this strong athlete.
Question: Caden, please tell us a bit about yourself, such as your hobbies and interests.
Answer: I am a mechanical engineer, newlywed, and I inherited two cool dogs, a Frenchie and a Yorkie as part of the package.
Outside of work, I love spending time with my wife, family and friends.
I’m a go-getter as I enjoy spending my time being busy and productive. You’ll often find me out in the garage fixing things, out on my bike or hiking or climbing somewhere.
My wife keeps me in check, and often reminds me to slow down and relax once in a while. She balances me out and I’m thankful for that.
I am a competitive athlete and my main focus is road racing, although I race cyclocross and mountain bike once in a while.
Question: We have heard you started a type of competition for those of us who are unable to road race compete due to COVID-19 social distancing guidelines.
Answer: This idea started as a grassroots effort between myself and a couple of other folks. We were wondering how we could combine our passion for cycling and integrate that into something that will not only challenge people but give back to the community, all while maintaining social distancing guidelines.
This was accomplished through using the app, Strava, which is a cycling/running application for athletes.
