Ashley is ecstatic about two-wheeled adventures, no matter how small or how grand. After researching, training for, and leading a ride for a group of friends from Chicago to Milwaukee, she started volunteering with Out Our Front Door in the Where the Wild Things Grow program (day rides to do environmental service in the parks and forest preserves). She now guides two rides a year while participating in many more, including bike-to-brewery rides and the annual, hilarious Chicago Naked Bike Ride. Ashley relishes in the joy and camaraderie of an adventure, just as much as the deep and quiet meditations that a long ride provides. Off the bike, Ashley is a lover of hatha and yin yoga, Italian submarine sandwiches, and Ethiopian jazz.
