Hello, my name is C.C. and this is my first year as a Community Ambassador with Healthy Ride, I am excited! I am just a girl who enjoys life, loves to laugh, and have big dreams of making the world a better place. I work professionally at the August Wilson African American Cultural Center, Zumba instructor, plus-size motivator, mentor, model, speaker, and a person who enjoys connecting people. I am currently working on my doctorate in Education in which I hope to become the coolest most fun educator that I can be. I am a lover of the arts, a singer, dancer, nerd, people lover, and enjoy spending time with my cocker spaniel, Laila, friends, and family.
I have lived in Pittsburgh all my life, born and raised. Go Steelers!
I learned to ride a bike when I was a toddler! My parents taught me and I thought I was never going to be able to ride a bike. I quickly went from training wheels to the real thing and have been loving it since!
I have used the bike share program off and on for the past 3 years. I mostly used the program for leisure and exercise. On my breaks from work I would ride through the city, shower, and go right back to work. It was a great way to unwind!
My favorite places to bike are in Highland Park, around Downtown and the Point, and when I go to Erie, PA. They have the best bike trails!
It has helped me accomplish personal goals for myself like weight loss, becoming stronger, and has made me a bike lover for life!
