Our Journey

Cycle of Love

We were introduced by a mutual cycling friend and the rest is history. Since our first date on 10/22/2020, we have been merely inseparable. Our mutual passion for cycling is what brought us together, made us close, and gave us a unique understanding of each other that isn't shared by most. We are both from the Northeast (Sean from Scranton, PA and Shannon from Albany, NY) and yet we both found our life journey brought us to California. We share commonalities of our east coast upbringing in the snowy cold winters and hot humid summers which has only heightened our love of California. We are both thankful that snow is a novelty in the Bay Area and that muggy is not even in the vocabulary. Along our journey, we both found cycling as a perfect outlet for our energetic and competitive personalities. Collectively, we have been cycling for more years than we should admit. Cycling has enhanced our love of California and through cycling we have found one of the best communities of friends and family. For us, there is no greater place to ride bikes. We are each other's best coaches and supporters when it comes to cycling and our other life passions (fitness, health, cats, gardening/floral and décor). We spend countless hours and miles exploring beautiful roads and trails of California together. We challenge each other to make each day count. We hope our journey of love will be like riding our bikes. Happiness is a way of travel, not the destination. Enjoy the ride!
