About Pamela Blalock

Pamela was born and raised in North Carolina. She has also lived in Atlanta and the Boston area in the US, as well as a couple of years in Nelson in New Zealand. She's calls Boston home now.

Pamela has always ridden a bike, but it became a way of life in the mid 80's, when she took up long distance bike riding. She completed the first Boston-Montreal-Boston in 1988. She's done a few more BMBs since as well as a couple of PBPs. She has completed both rides on both single and tandem bikes.

Pamela also commutes to work year round, but does possess a driver's license and does occasionally drive a car.

She enjoys fully-supported and self-supported touring, and cannot pass a coffee shop without stopping. (We call this affliction coffee shop constipation - the inability to pass a coffee shop.) This was the excuse she used for not racing! Of course in New Zealand, it's rare to find a coffee shop on a race route, and she indeed raced a few times there.

Pamela loves tandeming, and used one to hook John. She's also quite fond of cats and is happy to provide a lap for one whenever she can.

She has ridden between 10,000 and 14,000 miles per year for the last 20 years.
