Active transportation really entered my life in 2008 when I decided to bike across America. I have since cycled across the country twice and continue to ride for fun and to get around town. Bicycling has helped shaped my life and introduced me to a new way to view transportation, health and the type of community I want to live in. Being able to help progress my community's infrastructure and share the joys about walking and biking with children and adults is what fuels me. I enjoy educating and problem solving on how to make transportation and safety more integrated with our daily lives.
