I am Saria. I am half Japanese, but been living in Nepal since childhood. I am 18 and love everything that relates to mountain biking. Bicycle has always been my means of transport, be it for commuting to school or workplace. I ride during the weekends with Gnarly, and the team has allowed me meet new people with whom I have been able to share my passion for biking. Today, my pedals have become the guru of my life; the climbs on steep uphill and rides through tricky off-road always challenge my personal fortitude in daring to achieve my potential. Similarly, the relish from riding downhill helps me taste the essence of satisfaction after hard work.

Besides biking, I love doing creative works of art. I enjoy painting, doodling and making origamis. I am an IB Diploma graduate, and will be joining a college this fall either in the US or Canada for my further studies. My academic interests range from Genetic Biology to Gender Studies to Anthropology. Currently, I also work with Portal (Prefab) in helping rebuild homes for the earthquake victims in Nepal.
Interesting fact: I can count the number of movies I have watched just within my two hands. I have actually slept at the movie hall while watching World War Z.

I look to inspire more women to enjoy the freedom that comes from a set of wheels.
