Last bike class until September

Meet Lynn

Meet Lynn. She was my bike skills student yesterday. She is a retired operation room nurse who recently moved back to (hilly) Atlanta from (flat) Charleston and wanted to get more comfortable using gears. She said it was ok to tell you that she is 69. There is no age limit to feeling like a…

Stats to date in 2019

Today kicks off the two-day Local Author Book Tent at Lemonade Days, the immensely popular annual festival in the metro-Atlanta city of Dunwoody, GA. Come snag a copy of Traveling at the Speed of Bike! I’ll even be in the booth tomorrow (Sunday, 4/28) from 4-5 PM if you want to say hello! Not local?…
