What’s your name and location?
Karly Coleman, Edmonton, Alberta Canada
What type of cycling do you enjoy?
commuting, touring, winter cycling
What is your first cycling memory?
Learning to ride by using a vegetable canner as a mounting block. I would ride around and around our yard, fall off, run back to get the canner, take it back to the bike… it was only years later as an adult I realized it would have been easier to take the bike to the canner!
Who inspires you to ride, and better yet WHY?
The way I feel when I ride inspires me, because it is so glorious and I can get so many places
What has been your best moment on the bike so far this year?
zooming around, staying upright and off the ice, and bicycle traffic reporting

My everyday ride is a Mountain Equipment Coop Hold Steady. I also have a Brompton folder, a Pashley Princess Sovereign, an Electra, a Kuwahara Super Tour, a unicycle, and a mountain bike of some indeterminate age. My beloved and I also have a Belinky Viewpoint tandem.
