Learning How to Ride Again, in Spokane

After breaking up with her longtime boyfriend Veronica, 27, tried to decide what was next. As a bartender her first thought was to just drink. Instead, she started riding again. “It was the first time when something sad happened (and) I acted like a real adult and did something constructive and healthy.”

That summer she pedaled some 3,000 miles. The next, she completed a half Ironman. Now she commutes in Spokane on her fixed gear and rides a road bike “worth more than my car” and a big, heavy cruiser.

    I stopped riding in elementary school because biking became uncool just in time for bowl cuts to be ushered in. I started riding again my sophomore year in college after some hip friends made me realize I was being stupid.

    You really make it seem so easy together with our presentation but I in finding this topic to be actually
    one thing which I bedlieve I would by no means understand.
    It sort of feels too complex and extremely vast
    for me.I am taking a look ahead to your next post, I’ll try to get the hang
    of it!
