I'm a Midwest-raised, West Coast-dazed woman who just pedaled Seattle to Oakland. My hopes of inland Northwest loops were dashed by wildfires (because: climate change, folks). So I'm back with friends and family and figuring out what's next. Why all this? Start here-ish, or with my very official ten rules of bike touring, or with that time I was hanging out with some strange dude and his chainsaw... or just check out the latest. Thanks for riding along with me.
