Check them out here – Aura Cycles
What bike do you covet?
Canyon Speedmax CF 9.0
How many bikes do you own?
How do you store your bikes?
Road bike in the house, others in the shed
What cycling specific tools do you have in your “bike shed”?
Oh geez, this is a good test. Firstly a bike stand for maintenance, a pump obviously, torque wrench, spanner, chain whip, tyre levers as my digits are precious and weak! I’m sure there are others but I don’t use them or know what they do!
Do you do all your own maintenance or do you use a LBS? If so, which one?
If LBS stands for Live in Boyfriend Service then yes I use that. Thank you Ryan Fynn.
What is your pet hate about cycling?
Cyclists moaning about cars then going and doing the wrong thing themselves.
What do you love about cycling?
Friends and exploration.
Other than yourself, who is your favourite cyclist?
I think Emma Pooley is a great role model. She is both down to earth and competitive. I think most people could relate to how she got into cycling and that makes her achievements more tangible for people. Not that I think I could be World Champ!
What is your craziest/fondest cycling memory?
I love most Saturday mornings cruising around on my bike, in the sun, with my boyfriend, looking for a new breakfast spot.
What is your favourite post ride coffee spot?
I have lots. I am a coffee snob but also like being by the river or ocean. Sadly in Perth it’s rare to find them together!
If you were to buy a post ride reward, what would it be?
Gluten free salted caramel slice or coke or chocolate milkshake with a coffee shot. Mmmmmmmm
Do you have a nickname on the bike?
I’m hoping I’d ditched it now so won’t bring it back up.
Finish this sentence “When I’m on my bike I…..”
Always struggle to decide if it’s ok to stop to take another photo!
If you could ride anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I’m off to Italy with the bike in a few weeks, so at the moment I’ll say there.
What is your favourite training route and who with?
Allez Bitches recovery ride followed by coffee and breakfast.
What is the biggest cycling lie you have told your partner?
Telling him it’s best to rest, off the bike, when he’s sick but not taking my own advice. Is that a lie?
What would you like your partner to buy you for your next birthday?
Himself a cooking book ;p
Is there a local cycling outfit/company/cycling club/cycling group/person that you would like to plug?
Aura cycles (bike), South Perth Rouleurs (club) and Rapha (outfits)
Thanks Anna, looking forward to hearing how the trip to Italy went.
