Why do you ride? 

Bikes. They’re cool. I feel like cycling is a great thing that is often neglected. Many young children ride their bikes through the neighborhood, but only see it as a means of leisure, when cycling can be so much more.

Proudest moments/Bike career highlights:

Spent a whole day in UPENN’s bookstore. I prefer the library over a party.
