As an American studying in England for two years, I have been lucky enough to do my fair share of traveling. My favorite travel activity is to bike around cities. I'm an urban planner by background, and so I become really excited whenever I find a cycle sharing scheme in a new place. in the past year, I have most enjoyed trips to Lisbon and to Beijing (obviously very different, but equally awesome). I'm a quasi-serious runner (having completed 2 marathons and numerous other races). I'm originally from Los Angeles, but as I tell most people, LA isn't really my type of city -- too many cars, not enough public transit, and a bit too much glitz and glamour for my liking. Thanks for reading!
