Paloma's Story

Paloma Cady, born and raised in Southern California, was eight years old when her dad Ryan started Eliel Cycling. She’s fifteen now and a sophomore at San Dieguito Academy. Paloma plays water polo for the school team and also plays trombone in the school band. She spends most of her free time reading comics and ignoring her homework.

Paloma started swimming in sixth grade, partially as a way to avoid doing PE. However, she grew to like it, leading her to try out for the high school water polo team freshman year, which ended up being one of the best decisions she’s ever made. Water polo, much like cycling, is a test of endurance and mental fortitude, and pushes people to their very limits.

Paloma doesn’t ride her bike very often, but she enjoys the chance those rides give her to spend quality time with her dad and sister.
