I am so very blessed to live in the northwest. I am able to ride my bikes out of the shop and straight into what I like to call, my backyard. I can spend hours, or just head out for a quick ride to clear my head on those stressful days. Oh, who am I kidding? I don’t have stressful days. That’s just an excuse I tell the intern when she is cracking down on me to write these stories.
When I was a kid, I would ride the same roads and trails for hours and hours. My mom would pack me a lunch and send me on my way. (These stories drive Safety Sally crazy.) You can read more about my Free Range childhood here.
