Home: Fremont, NH
What bike (s) are you riding: Specialized Dolce & Specialized Ariel
Favorite bike route: Any of the routes in Durham on the Women’s Social Ride.
Most prized bike accessory: Hmmmm…not sure, maybe my lights so I’m well spotted when it starts to get dark
Helpful hint for other women bicyclists: Just dive in and have fun. No question is silly because someone made the mistake before you.
Why you bicycle: I love to ride my bike. I rode constantly when I was younger and then picked it back up this year after 16 years off of a bike. When I go back on the feeling came back instantly. I love who I am when I’m riding. I love that I can overcome challenges, I can let go of stress, and most of all I can enjoy life and the nature around me when I ride. I sold my motorcycle and thought I would miss it, but I didn’t get the same feeling on a motorcycle as I do my bike. I simply love riding my bicycle.
