I believe my love for cycling came to be easy as a child. Exploring outdoors on my bike meant everything to me.
It took me a few times before it clicked with my body and I took off from there. Exploring the outdoors on my bike is the best way to make me happy.
There was something exciting about feeling like you were flying on wheels.
I know that sounds weird but I enjoyed turning corners fast, going on hills, and making a bet with my sisters to see who could ride the bike the fastest to the end of the street.
My bike, my rules to do and explore anything.
Back in the day, my mom would tell me to be home at a certain hour, and off I went cruising through the neighborhood.
Winning Bikes Through Jog-A-Thon
Do you guys remember Walk-A-Thons? Or Jog-A-Thons?
Yeah, I was the queen of them. I wasn’t just some girl riding a bike winning bikes, I absolutely loved riding them.
If I wasn’t winning pizza and ice cream sundae parties for my class, I was winning bikes left and right.
I was on a winning streak and grew to be quite competitive from 1st-5th grade.
At one point, I had won so many bikes from raising the most money that my mom and two sisters each had their own bike.

Bike Riding as an Adult
Times have changed since riding bikes every day after school.
I literally have to fit bike riding in but then again, that makes it all the more special.
Thankfully, I married a man who likes bike riding as much as I do.
One of the tell-tale signs that he was the “one” was when he showed me all the bikes in his parent’s shed that he either bought or traded.
Can you say cute?
Just a couple of weeks ago, we took our bikes for a spin around Nathan Benderson Park and stayed there for hours.
I didn’t want to leave.
And this past August, we did a lengthy 20-mile bike ride on THEE BEST bike trails I’ve ever been on: West Orange Trail.
Here are cute pics from that ride.
