Rylee grew up with a passion for sport, taking part in every sport she could during her time at school. After giving up sport completely for 1.5 years when she started university Rylee decided part way through 2015 to train for a half ironman and this when when her love of cycling began.
While Rylee was competing in the Ironman 70.3 Taupo in December 2015 it was obvious that her cycling was a standout strenght and shortly after Rylee's focus shifted exclusively to cycling.
In March 2016 Rylee competed in her first cycling race, the Bev May Tour where she was entered in women's B grade and won the QOM Classification and placed 2nd overall. Shortly after in only her 2nd NRS race, Rylee found the podium placing 3rd in stage 4 of the National Capital Tour after being caught on the line after riding in the early break for the stage.
When not riding Rylee is completing a Bachelor of Sport and Rec at Auckland University of Technology and works at a local Auckland bike shop.
