hello! I’m Becky
The girl behind
two wheeled wanderer
As you might have gathered, I love bikes – particularly full-suspension ones, but a simple beach cruiser can be just as fun. I also love to travel and together, these two passions are the perfect match to explore the world!
It is my hope with Two Wheeled Wanderer to inspire you to get out and explore the world by the seat of a bike.
Whether your idea of a two-wheeled adventure involves lift-served DH bike parks or a casual pedal along a stunning bike path, I hope you find something on these pages to inspire your next adventure!

To Keep Your Balance You Must Keep Moving”
get to know me
here are a few of my favorite Two Wheeled Adventures…
- Mountain biking in Sedona. Sedona is hands down my favorite place to ride! The trails and views are simply amazing. I try to get back every year because I love it so much.
- Biking across Washington. A friend and I spend almost two weeks pedaling across the state from the Pacific Ocean on the Olympic Peninsula to Spokane in eastern Washington.
- Exploring Squamish, BC with my dad. Neither of us had really mountain biked in the Pacific Northwest and we both fell in love with the loamy trails and epic views!
- Bike touring around Ecuador. This was quite a few years ago, but it remains one of my all-time favorite bike trips. I’d love to recreate it sometime in the near future!
How I got here…
01. The Early years
I was fortunate to grow up with parents that love to travel. Every year during our spring or winter break they would take my brother and I on two-week adventures around the world. We went spelunking in Belize, skiing in Switzerland, white water rafting in the Dominican Republic, zip-lining in Costa Rica, and so much more. I loved every adventure and never wanted to come home!
02. School & College
During my senior year of high school, I did a study abroad in New Zealand where I got a taste of independent travel and the opportunities that it could provide. Then during my junior year of college, I went abroad to Kenya and Tanzania for a full year. It was beyond amazing!
03. my 20’s
Not wanting to give up my freedom for a 9-5 job, after college I bought a one-way ticket to Hawaii where I spent several months enjoying the laidback vibes of Maui. About two months after landing in Hawaii, I discovered Lindblad Expeditions and spent the next decade sailing aboard a fleet of small National Geographic cruise ships. In between contracts, I would travel to far-off places like Laos, Colombia, and Russia just to name a few.
04. My 30’s & Today
After a quarter-life crisis where I thought I should “get a real job” which led me to a masters degree in Nutrition, I found my way to the Eastern Sierra of California and it was there that I really got (back) into biking. I’ve always loved cruising around on two wheels and I did some mountain biking growing up, but it wasn’t until 2016 that I rediscovered my love for bikes. Now, bikes and two-wheeled adventures are what get me up in the morning and I’m excited to share my travels with you!
