Amy Thomas is a musician with a sense of wanderlust that can only be satisfied by rough roads, singletrack trails, and barely-ridden paths. To get wherever she wants, she swaps between 650b wheels with fat tires and carbon 700 wheels with flashy, pink highlights. Amy describes her devotion to off-the-beaten-path routes as “obsessive.”
We say that’s a good thing!
“I love to explore the less-travelled routes. I have my little gravel obsessions. I will spend an entire season devoted to exploring one area: Gifford Pinchot, Central Oregon, or my latest fascination: the Fifteenmile Creek area around Dufur.
“I’ll do anything to get out there.”
SUGAR WHEELS: PRETTY+ PERFORMANCE
“Cycling gives me the sensations of absolute freedom, flying, and fitness. I am a ‘woman of a certain age,’ and it is excellent to feel agile, gritty and strong.”
“I’m feeling faster and finer on my Sugar wheels. I call it ‘Pretty+Performance.’”
