These posts are about cycling. I love going out for a ride. At the moment, I’ve got 3.5 bikes. The one that gets the most use is my Giant Women’s City Escape, a hybrid that I commute to work on. I have a beautiful Canyon Ultimate CF SLX Dura-Ace Di2 in black and teal for long rides and races. I’ve also got a Giant TCX SLR1 for cyclocross/off-road cycling.

When I commute to work by bike, I usually pull a bike trailer. I’ve actually got three bike trailers, but one of them has been used almost daily since my daughter turned one. It’s a Thule Chariot Lite and my review of it is one of the most-read posts on my blog.

I love going out for long rides at the weekend or on my days off.
