So this week I’ve been grumping around about my lack of willing companions, when I ran into my friend Jess out on the trails this afternoon. Not only is she willing, but she’s excited! She is a fellow singlespeeder, and we are going to bring our bikes along and weave in some epic rides along the way. Super excited!  Stay tuned for further developments.

Enjoy those fabulous white thigh-high platform boots, too.)
