"I am no more an avid cyclist than I am an avid walker or avid eater. I am someone who often uses a bicycle, simply because it is the most civilized, efficient, enjoyable, and economical way to get around my city." Chris Bruntlett
Melissa blogs about their experiences at Modacity. Melissa began a blog titled Velo Family Diaries, that set out to chronicle her daily adventure with their two children on bikes. It quickly garnered a following. The success of her story-telling has led to several nominations in the female blogging community, guest posts on environmental and other female powered blogs, as well as becoming a regular contributor for Momentum Magazine and a feature in our very own Vélo Joy Blog.
