Rides I like the most: ALL!! I haven't had a ride I didn't like--but some are better than others! I don't especially like hail and hurricane force winds while riding!!

Dream trip: Riding on a sunny day (temperature at least 80) through Maine on up into Canada, alongside my special man, Wally. A ride without any sharp turns!!! (Still learning to master the tight turn.)

Anything else you'd like to say?: Being a member of SCRC is a wonderful experience. I have met so many great people. Thanks for all the support from everyone as I venture out onto the winding and curving roads of NC.
