Allison Schwarm

What I Love:

I love waking up before the sun and reading outside while watching it rise. I write a lot of short nonfiction stories about how places and landscapes define humans and shape perceptions. When I am not reading or writing, you can find me downhill skiing in the winters, hiking and camping in the summers, bouldering in the fall months, and working towards opening my own Bed&Breakfast in Spain one day!

Riding with TT Since:

2021

Trek Travel Role:

Trip Consultant

My Favorite Ride:

There are over 300 miles of bike trails in Sunriver, Oregon. Cycling under the Ponderosa and Juniper trees to Benham Falls is always a treat!

My Rides:

I have a very vintage Schwinn Cruiser from a garage sale. With one gear, it really allows you to enjoy the simplicities of cycling.
