Mud and Manolos is for women who aren’t afraid to rock out in heels or hiking boots.
I never intended to fall completely in love with cycling. A band geek and a writer, my sudden desire to trudge through mud and muscle over rocks and roots was surprising to say the least. But after that first trail ride on a cheap mountain bike with a very patient friend, I knew there was no turning back. At first I had no skills to speak of (yet plenty of bruises), but before long I approached the starting line on a new full suspension bike, anxious to compete in my first race.
I quickly learned that cycling is a passion and an addiction. A hard tail leads to full suspension, just as aluminum is the gateway to carbon. Over the years, a cyclocross and a road bike joined two mountain bikes in the garage. What will be next?
Thanks for stopping by! Feel free to kick off your shoes and stay a while. Hopefully you’ll find some tricks and tips to carry with you on your next ride. Comments and questions are always appreciated.
