What’s the bike scene like in Los Angeles for females?
It gets larger everyday. I usually ride by myself or in a small group of people, but everywhere I look there’s always a couple of girls riding the streets.
What’s your favourite ride right now? My purple Mercier kiloTT and my Motobecane road bike.
Where’s your favourite place to ride? San Gabriel Valley area, a lot of bike riders and a lot less angry drivers its nice to not worry if you’ll get hit or not.
Favourite riding outfit: Jeans, sneakers, v neck or tank and my utility belt!
Favourite food: Vegan Chinese food
Favourite movie: TOMBSTONE! And old westrerns.
Favourite book: Anything that’s Mythology
What makes you laugh? Whenever I eat shit on my bike. I never get embarrassed I just think “damn! I bet I looked stupid!”
What makes you angry? When cars purposely get close to me so ill hit the curb. It’s happened multiple times.
What are you listening to on your I-pod? I made a playlist of all the songs I like to listen to while riding (The Sounds, Tokyo Police Club, Pantera, etc).
Do you have any pets? Yes, a snake, 2 golden retrievers, and 1 gecko. I used to have a rabbit that I would take on bike rides with me.
