I began racing after a chance meeting on Beach Drive in Rock Creek Park with David “SuperDave” Osborne. Witnessing firsthand the lack of support and mentorship in women’s racing in our district, in 1999 I joined with three other like-minded women, Evelyn Egizi, Robyn McGuckin, and Kiersten Johnson, and founded Artemis Racing, Inc.
I started road biking while living in Japan. Initially I did local club rides and then branched into longer distances and touring. After cycling most of the coastline and length of Japan, I decided to try racing. I did well in local races and was recruited by a national women's semi-pro cycling team, Asahi Muur Zero.

After completing a collegiate career as a 400m hurdler, Adrienne switched directions and began competing in local road races, primarily to stay fit. Eventually that led to triathlons and finally to bike racing.
Renee has been an avid cyclist for most of her life, and for years was curious about racing but had no idea how to get started. That changed one Saturday in 2009, when she crossed paths with Artemis' Super Dave Osborne while out riding in Rock Creek Park.
