THE STORY:

I figured, what better excuse to do something you already love, than to do it for the trees and their communities?

My name is Cheyanne, and I was born and raised in Pensacola, FL. I graduated from the University of Florida's Wildlife Ecology and Conservation department in 2013, and I've spent the past few years working as a prescribed fire and land management technician for various state and nonprofit agencies. While I am lucky enough to work with trees in a wilderness setting, I realize that the trees in our urban environments are important, too! These trees provide us with shade, beauty, and the fresh air we breathe, even if it may be just for a few minutes on a lunch break from a busy office.

I believe that in a loud and hectic world---one that grows increasingly more concrete every day---there also grows an increasing need to turn our eyes and our ears towards the quiet facilitators of our lives, the plants that have a purpose and a benefit, but not a voice. As realized by John Muir long ago, "... We must count on watching and striving for these trees, and should always be glad to find anything so surely good and noble to strive for."

I first tested the waters of road biking at RAGBRAI 2015 (Register's Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa) after hearing about it from a friend, and I realized that after what was easily the best week of my life, I was hooked. So I bought my first road bike and began riding. After a few months spent recovering from an unrelated back injury in January 2016, I now ride 4-6 days a week, anywhere from 25-100 miles at a time. I also attended RAGBRAI 2016, and I look forward to meeting my TREE family on my first ever STIHL Tour des Trees. The people that I have met cycling and the positive impacts that cycling has had on my life, both physically and mentally, is indescribable. Before I began cycling, I was initimidated by what I thought a "real" road cyclist was. (You know, tight shorts, expensive shoes, hauling down the road, tire-to-tire with other incredibly fit people going 25mph.) But I've since discovered that cycling is for all shapes and sizes, of people and bikes! I encourage everyone to at least try it out, and if you are a little nervous about it, talk to a local bike shop about where to begin. It changed my life.

Look for me riding around Pensacola in the PINK bike shoes!

Safe riding,

xoxo Cheyanne
