    Nice! Thank you for featuring a casual, occasional rider. I think Becka will help encourage more people to consider riding at least some of the time, on at least some of their trips. It’s not an all-or-nothing deal.

    I’ve always liked the way Globe Bicycles doesn’t slap labels and brand names all over their bikes.

    Cool interview btw!

    I’m sure she’ll take a lot of flak here for being pro-helmet.

      A helmet saved my life. I’ll sign up for some of that flak.

    Good for her. I’ll be happy to share any and all “flak” with her regarding her pro-helmet stance.
