Coffee & Bikes, Bikes & Coffee. That’s how this all started. We’ve been riding and blogging for 7 years now. We’re still doing that, but now I’ve branched off by starting a small brand of coffee for cyclists called Sip, Clip & Go! Coffee. You can pick it up at the website or at assorted bike shops in the Pioneer Valley. The coffee is 100% fair trade and organic, and I donate 1% of coffee profits to Bikes Belong. It’s a fun little venture that celebrates the cultural link between cycling and coffee, and it looks pretty great on your countertop, not to mention it’s delicious.
When I’m not selling and drinking coffee I ride my bike as often as possible, I’m a single mom, and work as a full time as a marketing and communications pro at a small agency. I enjoy riding mountain, road and cyclocross in any combination and as often as possible. I started racing cyclocross as a Cat 4 in 2012 and developed a bona fide addiction to CX. I have a minimum of 10 races on my schedule for 2013, where I’m hoping to eek myself into the middle of the pack.
