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.
When did you stop riding a bike? When did you start again? Let us know in the comments.
