Motivational Monday with Sirena Lundsford

…e this year. What has been your best moment on the bike this year? I think the best moment on the bike this year hasn’t happened yet!

Nothing feels better to me on the road than putting in a good pull for someone else. All About My Bikes I have one bike right now, a Ridley X-Fire that I am simply in love with….
