Meet Grace Heimsness, bike tour guide for Trek Travel

Grace Heimsness

What I Love:

A good story always gets me, whether I'm writing, listening to, or reading it in an old dog-eared paperback. In the off-season you can find me at the rink playing shinny with the guys or on stage playing cello with my local symphony orchestra. Well-crafted puns, impromptu haiku slams, and live blues stumbled upon happenstance are just a few of my day-makers.
