Kelly Ulmer was first introduced to road cycling by her older brother during her freshman year at the University of Florida. Her bike quickly became a primary mode of transportation and a way to explore Gainesville’s swampy surroundings. After graduating with her specialist degree in mental health counseling in 2015 and starting her career as an eating disorder therapist, Kelly discovered a deeper passion for being on her bike as a form of self-care and time for reflection and adventure. Soon after completing her first century in 2017, Kelly caught the bug for ultra-distance cycling. Her longest ride to date was 250 miles, but she has hopes of completing a full super randonneur series this coming year. Kelly recently moved from Florida to Fort Collins, Colorado where she found an incredible cycling community that has intensified her love for the sport. Kelly currently rides with the Fort Follies, an all-inclusive women’s cycling club co-founded by a Hagens Berman | Supermint team member herself.
