Lauren , Arizona (USA)
I have lived in Arizona most of my life, and started mountain biking for fun about 10 years ago. My rides are mainly in the Scottsdale and Sedona areas near where I live.
I never planned on doing it for any other reason than for being active and seeing places you can’t see any other way than by bike. I bike mostly with my family and friends. I started sharing my biking photos on Instagram some time ago, as the desert I live and ride in is so unique and beautiful. The lower desert can be very harsh, unforgiving, and surprising. Sedona is one place that is so unique with its red rocks and technical terrain.
During the course of my riding, I have progressed through bikes and advanced my skills. I try to ride wisely while pushing myself to improve. My current bike is a Pivot Trail 429. I also do Pilates, weights and hiking to cross train. Thank you for reading my bio and I hope you are all safe on your bikes. I enjoy seeing your photos and learning about the beautiful places to bike in the world.
