A NOTE FROM SUSIE
Hello Everyone! I've learned over the last few years how biking can change your life in an incredibly fun way. As an avid outdoor enthusiast, adventure traveler and bike rider, it only made sense to start a business that would help share that lifestyle and passion with others. I hope to instill enough confidence and adventurous spirit in fellow riders so they can begin to explore the world by bike and enjoy it as much as I do. Because let's be honest, traveling while on two wheels is more fun!
