In one simple moment, Paola made a recommitment to her health and decided to get back on a bike.

"It was an epiphany of sorts. You come to realize that your life somehow has gotten so complicated and you start to long for a little bit of simplicity, and there's nothing simpler than a bike."

So she made the change, and started to ride her bike just about everywhere. To work, for errands, and all around the city. And it hasn't just helped her get from point A to point B, but it's also helped her lead a healthier, happier life.

"My life has changed for the better. My health has improved and I've managed to get some of my arthritis pain under control. I love to ride because it makes me happy."

She understands the importance of a healthy mind and body. And that's why she has us.

Paola Ferrer, Cycling Advocate, Member, and Healthier Person.
