7. Anything more to add?
I fell in love with biking because my kiddos and hubby got to fast for me to run and keep up with them. I had to leave them or join them. So I conquered my fears of falling and embarrassing my self and with God’s grace I joined them! I fell in love with cycling over night – literally. I went from can barely being able to balance to participating in cycling events and triathlons in under a year. I love to ride the full Hutto Trail! Hutto residents can often spot me around town with my kids, a few ladies and my husband zipping by the corn fields, commuting to Dollar General on my mountain bike or participating in charity rides like the LiveStrong on my road bike. I would love to host a ride/tour of our Hutto Trail starting from Nadine Johnson Elementary – Hutto Elementary. It has everything. A few bridges, paves, trees, bathrooms, a little trail, parking and perfect 3-6 miles route.

The Community of Cyclists Campaign is an effort by Bike Hutto to show the wide variety of people in Hutto that bike. The campaign will promote the fact that there is no one “type” of person who rides a bicycle. They are our friends, our neighbors, our students, and our colleagues. It is always best to put a face to the name, whether you’re talking about bike safety, future bike infrastructure, or social events. Hutto is about community.
