Who am I?  The Cyclist's Wife of course! My real name is Sarah Oliver.  I live in Northern California with The Cyclist, aka my wonderful husband and best friend, Nicholas.  We were married in June, 2011 in our favorite place in the whole wide world, Montana.  We are parents to Nicholas' son Levi (The Munchkin) and Downtown Otis Brown, our enormous Chocolate Lab and a sweet little girl due to arrive in early October 2014.

We spend most weekends riding bikes, running, traveling or with friends and family....and sometimes traveling to cycling events around the state.  It's good that we love travel (road trip or otherwise) and bikes, or I couldn't call myself The Cyclist's Wife.  In my spare time I love to cook...and eat, which forces me to train for half marathons and other events simply to keep fitting into my jeans, while enjoying tasty morsels of my choosing.  I don't believe in diets.  They are evil.

Speaking of spare time (Ha! that's funny!) I also have a real job where I work 40 hours a week.  So, between real work, cycling, being part time step-mom, soon full-time mom to be, and life, I create this blog.  It is a collection of all things I'm passionate about. Thank you to everyone who reads, peeks and peruses our adventures through life, with food, bikes, fitness and fun on the side. In reading this blog, I hope you: smile, laugh, re-make a tasty treat of mine or a creation from another blogger that I've shared, get hungry, get inspired.

Thank you!

The Cyclist's Wife

P.S.  I would love to hear from you!  You can reach me at thecyclistswife @ gmail (dot) com
