WHY DO YOU RIDE? As a mother, a business owner, a wife, a sister and a friend, I'm a decision maker, a list maker, a lunch maker and a day maker. I ride to refill my tank and bring it inward for a 45 minute, soul-feeding sweat sesh. I ride to connect back to my mission and tap into the energy of the group. I also feel like one badass mother when I ride. And who doesn't want more of that feeling in their life?
