Amber Perry was hesitant to become a Rider of the Week because her bike was looking a little beat up after a few crashes.
The University of Arizona senior, double majoring in molecular and cellular biology and Spanish, says she has crashed a few times on the trolley tracks and once with another bike, so the crashes have led to a rough looking bike.
It’s the trolley tracks and the cracked roads that frustrate Perry the most while riding around on the older Schwinn bicycle her father handed down to her.
“I get butterflies in my stomach when I cross the cracks,” she says.
She says one of her favorite things about riding in Tucson is the Tuesday Night Bike Ride and although she goes less frequently because of her schedule, she enjoys the different routes and the people.
