Name: Sarah Swenson
Home: Dover, NH (I have lived all over the world though and am originally from Minnesota.)
Occupation: Chief Sustainability Officer for PrimeAsia Leather Company
What bike (s) are you riding: FELT road bike when at home, and whatever bike a friend has lent or I have rented when traveling abroad.
Favorite bike route: Biking in Taroko Gorge, Taiwan (Eastern Taiwan) surrounded by beautiful mountains, a rushing mountain river and temples. Attached picture taken while biking in Taroko Gorge. The Taiwanese are very enthusiastic bikers as well.
Most prized bike accessory: My helmet! I’ve seen some scary cycling accidents in areas of the world where there are not good hospitals.
Helpful hint for other women bicyclists: When traveling for work or fun make the effort to get on a bicycle and explore!
Why you bicycle: I have always liked the speed at which one sees the world from a bike. I find running is too slow and operating a motorized vehicle takes you too fast to enjoy the scenery.
