Hey there! I’m Jenny. I have an editorial background and work as a Senior Managing Editor on a science journal. It involves problem solving, scheduling, and interacting with different personalities. I’m also the author of five books of poetry, a mom to three kids, and a rock climber. I first started riding my bike when I was a little girl and it was a way for me to get away from my four older brothers. It was the first taste of freedom for me: as long as I stayed on the sidewalk I could stay out riding around until it got dark.
There’s so much to love about Bike Iowa City. My favorite riding is on my mountain bike on dirt, but I also enjoy commuting, riding around the city with my kids, and I’ve tried more gravel riding lately! Biking is a great way to stay healthy and meet new friends. The Iowa Mountain Bike Festival — which took place the last two Octobers at Coralville Creekside park, was tons of fun and more connecting trails were recently built there. I encourage everyone to go check those out!
