Hey there! I’m Jenny. I work as a Managing Editor on several science journals. It involves problem solving, scheduling, and interacting with different personalities. I like helping science get published into the world! I am also a mom to three, a poet who likes to write about horror movies and nature, 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. I love how there are paved trails and dirt trails, I love the different weather, I love how I can meet other people just by riding my bike. I love anything that gets more people outside. I love how there are more bike lanes in Iowa City than a few years ago and that the Iowa Mountain Bike Festival — which happened in October — took place at the Coralville Creekside park where a local company Backyard Trails, LLC built the trails!
