Ramona Wheels Right

We met Ramona Wheelright during the Ride of Silence, San Francisco 2009. It was a nice quiet ride to honor those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways. The ride brought together a small sized-but good group of riders to pay the respect. Amongst them, we were happy to meet the organizer of the San Francisco ride, Ramona Wheelright. At the end of the ride, we chatted with her about bikes, the city and many things that SF riders can chat about for hours. She had a beautiful bicycle with her the day of the ride, has a wonderful smile and her mellow solid energy is contagious. We're looking into more rides with her in the near future. Ride on Ramona!! It was a pleasure to meet you.

Ramona writes in SFGate for SFenvironment:
Approaching an age that could fairly be considered mid-life, I often wonder if I will ever stop riding a bicycle. I figure that it's not age that will determine whether I ride, but rather the ride-ability of the terrain or the town in which I live. In San Francisco, bicycling just makes sense. Whatever the destination, biking is mobility; and mobility can equate to freedom. For me, bicycling means increased quality of life. I venture that bicycling might mean the same for you. /Read more [here]
