Meet Cherri. Cherri is a fiber artist who lives in Ashland, Virginia, with her husband, John. She loves to ride her beloved Bianchi and most days can be found pedaling on the roads in Central VA or in her studio, selling fiber art or giving sewing lessons. She is an extremely positive person whom I can say has never written an unkind word about anyone or anything. Her blog posts are full of optimism and her joy of almost everything in her life, including cycling.
This fall, Cherri decided she wanted to pursue a lifelong dream. All of us have dreams. Mine usually involve naps and/or alcohol. Cherri’s dream was to ride her bike to Alaska. So she’s going to do it.
I’ll let that sink in for a moment.
Cherri bought a Surly Long Haul Trucker touring bike, sold her studio, and has made preparations to bicycle across one of the world’s continents. She leaves on April 6. I encourage everyone to stop by her blog, Saddle surfin’ on My Bianchi, to read about her exploits and wish her good luck. It should be an incredible journey and I’m looking forward to reading all about it!
And in her honor, I will sign off this post as Cherri does with every one of hers.
Go make your own breeze and remember: If you’re not having fun; you’re in the wrong gear.
