Dream ride: Hmmm, I think I have it! (Thank you honey!)

How long have you been riding?: 10 years

Average Miles a Year: Not enough the last few years, but I am hoping that will change this year.

What do you like about riding?: Freedom of the open road, control of the bike and most importantly sharing fun trips with great friends.

Why did you join SCRC?: I had just moved to Raleigh, and wanted to meet new people who liked to ride, and had other similar interest as myself.

What does SCRC mean to you?: Friendships mostly. There are some great folks in this group. It also holds a special place in my heart because SCRC is where I met my sweet husband, Tony.

Rides I like the most: Love riding in the mountains and up and down the coast.

Dream trip: I'd love to travel out west. Tony and I have also talked about doing an Edelweiss Alps tour which would be a blast.

Favorite Quote: "Slow down and enjoy life. It's not only the scenery you miss by going too fast - you also miss the sense of where you are going and why."

Anything else you'd like to say?: This is a great group, and I’m happy to be a part of it.
