|Lillian fixes her tour-mate's flat tire on a trip across Arizona|
• What is your age, roughly speaking? 29.61 years
• What is your occupation or area of study? I work as a bike mechanic! And I clean stalls at a horse boarding stable on weekends.
• What is your most frequent destination on your bike? Work is a pretty boring answer, so I'm going to have to go with the other half of that trip: home! That said, Spuds Produce, Groc.Out, and the Evergreen Bike Shop are top hits as well.
• How did you hear about the Bicycle Commuter Contest? I can't remember! It just seems like everyone knows about it.
• How many times have you participated in the Bicycle Commuter Contest? Just once, but I only moved to Olympia a little over a year ago. I participated in one the year before in Smithers, BC, and inadvertently participated in many more just by the fact that I ride almost everywhere.
• What got you started riding your bike to get around (practical cycling)? When I was a young lass I lived 2 miles from the place where I kept my horse, and didn't like having to pester my older brother or parents for rides. One time I got in big trouble for riding home just after dark, and that led to an enlightening realization: I could ride DAY OR NIGHT as long as I had lights on. From then on, I was FREE! I also found if I rode my bike to school, I could sleep in a little later than if I took the bus.
