This blog is about life from a cyclist’s perspective in and around the Washington, D.C., area.
Originally from Iowa, the District has been home for more than 10 years. My husband, Felkerino, and I are regular commuters and utility cyclists.
From time to time, we escape the city and go bicycle touring.
I see the bicycle as a lifeline. I use it for commuting, transportation, exploration, and recreation. In a year, I average around 8,000 miles of pedaling.
Felkerino and I have several bikes between us, and store them in what we fondly call the Dining Room Bike Shop. You can read more about my bikes on the “Bikes I Ride” tab.
I am a fan of running, too, and am one of those people you might see sneaking in a quick run on the National Mall during their lunch break. I run-commute and have completed nine marathons.
Thanks for reading! Have a comment, but don’t want to post it? Get in touch with me via the “Contact” tab. You’ll also find some of my randonneuring thoughts and experiences over at The Daily Randonneur.
