It’s time for another installment of the I Bike Richardson series, where we put a face on Richardson cyclists. We’d like to introduce Marianne Rogers. She took the time to answer a few questions about biking. Enjoy:
How long have you been riding?
I have ridden most of my life. We scaled it back when we had kids until they were old enough to join us!
How often do you ride?
I ride most days. I commute to work (from Plano to Richardson) 2 – 3 days per week, run errands on my bike, do dirt riding on occasion and long distance rides on the weekends.
What’s your favorite route?
We just did the Beauty and the Beast in Tyler and I’d say those are some of the prettiest roads we have ever been on.
Why do you cycle?
I bicycle because it is fun! I get to continue the fun when I commute and run errands on my bike. (getting stuff done while having fun doing it!)
What is your perspective on riding – in general or in Richardson?
Cycling is great because you can ride great scenic roads and have fun doing it.
Riding in Richardson is great because there are lots of nice bike paths, bike lanes and bike friendly roads.
Tell us about your bikes.
Trek Crossrip – Commuter
Trek X-Caliber 5 – Mountain bike
Trek 2.1 Lexa SLX C – Road bike
Trek T50 Double Track – Tandem
MINI brand foldable bike – for something completely different.
My favorite is my Crossrip…it’s just so versatile.
We want to thank Marianne, for sharing her perspective on Richardson cyling.
We’d also like to extend an invitation to any cyclist who lives and/or rides in Richardson to share their story as well. You can either answer the questions (above) or send in a story – along with some pics to bikefriendlyrichardson(at)gmail.com.
