And so it BEGINS…

A Lifestyle of cycling adventures

Hey LIFE JUNKY!

I’m Monica

Endurance and Cycle Traveler, Professional Blogger, and eCommerce Adventrepreneur. Join me as I share epic rides, wild stories, health + training, and useful travel + business tips.

But it wasn’t always like this…

I’ve spent a good chunk of my young adult life following what I was told is a “successful” life: Get Straight A’s in High School + College, land a 9-5 CAREER, get married, have kids, buy a home with a white-picket fence, and you are SET! Although all of the above are AMAZING accomplishments, I can’t help but feel like there’s more to life than this. I’m not completely there yet, and I don’t plan to be. To CONTINUE to challenge myself thru cycling, travel, and entrepreneurship, along with maintaining a loving marriage and family, I’ve found the very essence of FREEDOM and JOY money can’t buy. Now, I can’t wait to share more of my experiences with you in hopes you are AWAKEN with the VERVE and SPUNKNESS you are meant to be in this world. Let’s go!

Beginner’s Guide to Hatha Yoga for Cyclists

FLEXIBILITY has been a stumbling block for me when it comes to cycling. I swear I build lactic acid within 5 miles of riding! I’m always super tight, especially in the hip flexor area. It gets worse the longer I cycle…not good for an endurance rider. I sought the help of my good friend Vanessa at Yoga Vibe WeHo to see if YOGA can help solve this problem once and for all. I got my first real glimpse in the world of Hatha Yoga, and it didn’t disappoint! Check out what I got out of it. Eye-opener stuff!
