On our blog today we're featuring one of our favorite hoodrats and avid bike riders, Susy Castillo. Susy has been a Purdy Ave supporter since day one and has her hand in many of the community bike rides around Miami. We asked Susy how she fell in love with #lifeonabike.
Susy: “I got into biking in Colombia. I'm from Manizales - which hosts prestigious tournaments nationally and worldwide. The mountains serve as playgrounds for hundreds on bikers daily - road or mountain.... most of our youth is spent either kicking a soccer ball around or shredding mountains uphill or downhill on paved and unpaved roads.”
Susy’s favorite bikeable Miami neighborhoods are Coral Gables, Wynwood and the Roads. Slow traffic and lovely trees is all she asks for. Come meet Susy tomorrow night at we Ride Purdy at 7:15pm. Meet up at the Sunset Marina parking lot!
