Either my Trek Silque or Trek Lync.

Ashley Trek Travel Commuter


What’s your commuter bike?
My one and only (for now) is a Trek Lexa 4 road bike. It gets the job done and I’m obsessed with the color!

How far do you ride to work?
My round-trip commute is a beautiful 13 miles!

Commuter “pro-tip”?
Being sweaty at work is the worst. Solution: dresses! I’ve realized they’ve become my go-to when I commute because you can just stuff them in your jersey and not have to worry about a backpack!

Favorite part about your route?
My favorite section is the first three miles through the length of the UW-Madison Arboretum, complete with a descent through a thick deciduous forest.

What’s the one thing you can’t commute without?
My bike, of course. Also, my travel coffee mug filled with my favorite coffee is pretty essential to power me through the morning.

Favorite breakfast?
Coffee, did I mention I like coffee? If you want actual food then I’d say avocado toast and a fried egg.
