Some folks call me Red. Some call me Speegs. My name is Colleen and I live in Pittsburgh PA. I work right next to one of Pittsburgh's many river trails.
I reacquainted myself with bicycling in 2011.
In the summer of 2013, with much trepidation, I decided to venture out on the roads with traffic and experience all that I could from my bike.
In 2015 I separated from my spouse of 13 years, moved back to the city and I began commuting to work with my bikes. Then I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer and I'm dealing with that. I lost my trademark red locks to chemo treatments so I'm not sure I can legitimately call myself Red any longer.
I will never take for granted Pittsburgh's gorgeous sweeping vistas and quirky nooks. I want to go out every day and drink them in.
