What is your BikeStyle?
Dressed to the nines, rain or shine.

What are your favorite clothes to bike in?
High heels. It’s so much easier to bike in them than walk.

Where are we most likely to spot your bike?
Anywhere! I’m a mountain biker, roadie, mom taxi, cyclocross nut, and avid commuter.

What do you like most about riding?
When I deke out of work to go to a meeting I feel like I’m 8 years old on my way to Jenny Popkin’s to play.

What is your dream bike for everyday cycling?
I covet a Naked Bicycles stainless steel City Adventure. Handmade on Quadra Island by the world’s fastest man (until recently) Sam Whittingham.

What did you eat for breakfast?
Cars. See you later suckers!

What song is most played on your iPod?
“Strong Coffee” by Cat Empire.

Basket or panniers?
A pannier purse … just grab and go!
