Portland, OR // Riding bikes, playing outside, Z dogs, painting my nails, eating good food and drinking too much coffee.

Picture perfect conditions on St Helen’s today were complimented by the chilliest ride ever with Amy.

Dammit highway 30, you screwed me and my favorite manicure ever.

Also, @rapha hi viz pink bidons look pretty cool in the light

She’s back!

Not the longest or the hardest lunch ride, but certainly one of the most fun.

Commute run + new favorite socks.

Yep, we’re still bad at this

Oh my @nailsyall! @sarebew has some killer Yellowstone themed Old Fiathful and bison nails, and how could I resist a SHARK?

Perfect dirt to shred some road bikes

I’m still psyched about #womens100 you guys. Thank you to everyone who led, rode, organized and supported rides around the world. There were rides in something like 40 countries! | photo @jorda_n_reid

Snack attack!

Reset

Sometimes, midway through a quickly passing summer that started off full expectations, I am in desperate need of a reset. I’m scattered, stagnant on my bike, tired, and frustratingly bored. Then, along comes Rapha Rising… this silly Strava challenge that for the second year in a row has managed to push me just hard enough and force me to narrow my focus on the essentials in order to finish. As I rest today, I’m tried, but reset and reenergized about what I can do on my bike despite work, life and a occasional lazy streak.
