No one will ever mistake her for a hammerhead. Her preferred speed of travel while riding her road bike is in the 18-21 MPH range, with occasional bursts up to 26-30 MPH.
The Bike Diva and her husband participate in various charity road bike events including the MS150, Pedal for PAL ride, Frank Stark Celebration Ride and century rides with the Leukemia Societies Team in Training program.
