What kind of rider are you? How experienced are you? What would you like to improve on?

New to biking. I consider myself a recreational cyclist. I like to ride out to see the pretty scenery and moo at the cows. I would like to improve on hills and riding in traffic.

How far do you typically ride or would like to start riding? What's the farthest you've gone? Average speed?

15-30 miles but I would love to expand to 40-60! So far the farthest I have ridden is 33 miles. Average speed is prob 9-10mph.

How often do you ride or would like to ride?

I don't ride much at all (maybe twice a week) but I would love to ride about 4 times a week. I just never have time!

What days or time of day are you usually free to ride?

During the day, no later the 2PM start time. I am on a 12 hour night shift so I have to sleep sometime. My days fluctuate. I have every other weekend available and during the week on alternating 'MondayTuesdays' and 'WednesdayThursdays'. If I'm in the area and there is a ride, I'll be there!

What other activities do you enjoy that people might want to join you in? (i.e. Mountain Biking, Knitting, Surfing, Basket Weaving, etc...)

P90X, volunteer at animal shelters, Road biking in the Contra Costa area on my days off


I hope to make cycling a better habit in my life and hope to help other's with the same goal! Looking to get healthy and social.
