I am an ultra distance cyclist! I ride gravel, road and mountain bike. My usual distance of riding is usually around 10,000-13,000 miles a year. I spend a ton of time on the local roads and trails. I have had a lot of close passes as well as people intentionally trying to intimidate me. I love cycling and feel that it defines a huge part of who I am as a person. I would like to see it made safer so that more people can enjoy it without living in fear that someone is intentionally going to try and take them out just because they are on a bike ride. I feel we are people and people in cars don’t see us as such. They see us as vermin that are interfering with their routine. I am passionate about what I do and I want to help make a change!
