What makes you a Tough Chik: Wanting to be a good example for my adult daughters and coaching other middle age ladies to learn what a joy it is to ride road bikes and get fit.  My husband and I “made” our daughters ride from infancy through junior high (in a trailer and on the back of tandems).  After a 10 plus-year hiatus for her, this year my 25-year-old decided that riding thing isn’t too bad and joined us on the Annual Amtrak Century in September.  Picture is she and I riding together.  She would be a tough chik for 2013 as well if she wasn’t spending the year in New Zealand.

If you had a super power, what would it be? Be able to change a flat in under 1 minute.  I’m not bad at it, because I’m patient and take my time, but would be cool if it was super fast.
