Stacey Nakagawa

Wheels: Novara Carema Pro, Specialized Stumpjumper and a hot pink, gold chain Cruiser

Favorite activities: Besides biking? Swimming in clear, blue tropical water; ultimate Frisbee; travelling and eating; hiking; snowboarding. 

Stacey is a true Seattle native and grew up immersed in everything PNW. Her love for biking started with the ultimate gift: a Huffy Thunder, equipped with “#4” racing placards. 

Stacey started riding seriously after she completed her first sprint triathlon, starting with a junky old mountain bike and later discovering her need for speed on a road bike. She has participated in everything from 24-hour round-the-clock mountain bike races to the Honolulu Century Ride.  Most recently, she’s been focused on family bike riding, inspiring her three-year-old daughter to ride around the block with anything two-wheeled.

Before joining Cascade, Stacey worked for Seattle REI in Community Outreach and Events.  She’s excited to continue with an organization focused on building community and promoting healthy lifestyles!
