What’s the bike scene like in Kansas City for females?
I think it’s pretty diverse. From cyclocrossin’ to trickin’ to just straight crusin’ there are ladies representing every scene here. That being said, Kansas City is not the most bike friendly place. We get all four seasons [right now being humidity central], have uncourteous/uninformed drivers, and hills a plenty. It does take a certain amount of toughness to navigate the city daily. Most females [and males] new to cycling &/or the city underestimate themselves. Only way to get stronger is to power up hills smiling through the glistening sweat till the top. [a little Skeletonwitch blasting through the earbuds helps a bit, too!]
What’s your favourite ride right now? My Raleigh 1972/1973 (?) Professional conversion.
Where’s your favourite place to ride?
Kansas City! Specifically down to the West Bottoms and out East. I dig the train tracks, industrial buildings, and empty streets. I’ve also had some great adventures in Chicago during the summer. It’s so flat you can ride for hours and not even notice!
Favourite riding outfit: Bike shorts and nightgown, super breezy and lightweight. Perfect for the humid Killa City summers!
Favourite food: I’ve been on a big Kale kick lately.
Favourite movie: Mash. [I don’t really watch movies, I tend to fall asleep]
Favourite book: Night
