What I Love:

I love water! Lakes, ocean, rivers, and I love all the fun things you can do on them: Kayak, surf, boat, paddleboard, white water raft. I also love dogs, coffee, skiing, conversations with family and friends, and reading books. And of course, a good, scenic bike ride.

Guide

My Favorite Ride:

My favorite bike trip ever was riding RAGBRAI with my friends. It's like a seven-day party across Iowa, stopping in the towns along the way. Lots of cornfields, beer, and shenanigans—what you'd expect from the Midwest.

My Rides:

I ride a very old CAAD10 for road rides, a Juliana Furtado for shredding, and a hot pink brompton for everything else.
