I ride bicycles for transportation, touring, and bike overnights. I'm most happy dreaming and planning the next adventure. I also lean towards rescuing and updating 1980s bikes, often undervalued as reliable commuting machines. In 2016 I sprang for a Rivendell Clementine because I wanted a wide-tire, step-through touring rig, though I still appreciate older bicycles. You might call me a budding mechanic - I upgrade parts, add stylish bling, well...just because. When a girl has her own red toolbox, anything's possible!
