Ride your heart out… randonneuring, transportation cycling, coffeeneuring, and bike touring. Since 2010, Chasing Mailboxes has been a space to share stories about bicycling – both long rides and short ones, as well as tandeming and single bike riding. And sometimes I write about running, too.
My husband and I regularly ride with our local club, the D.C. Randonneurs. In 2011 and 2019 we completed the famed 1200K Paris-Brest-Paris on tandem, and have completed a few other 1000K and 1200K rides together as well. Sometimes we participate in non-rando cycling events, and escape the city from time to time to go bike touring.
Through Chasing Mailboxes, I’ve interviewed people about various cycling-related topics, including:
- Women BikeDC – interviews with women who live and ride in the D.C. area.
- BikeDC Speaks – discussions with D.C.-based cyclists about riding in D.C.
- Bikes to Like – featuring people’s bikes, particularly rando rides, but other bikes, too.
- Freezing Saddles – talking with D.C.-area commuters about winter commuting, including gear tips.
- On Writing and Riding – interviews with some of my favorite cycling-centric bloggers.
- We Love Coffeeneuring – interviews with coffeeneurs about all things bikes and coffee, including some of the “original coffeeneurs.”
