Hi, I'm Cat A. Brasseur, @According2Cat on Twitter, or @TheDigitalCat on Instagram, and I write about my cycling adventures. In 2010, after 25 years off the bike, I decided to get a bike and start riding again. In 2012, I was diagnosed with DCIS, an early and completely curable form of breast cancer. In 2013, I decided to get a faster bike. I'm a teacher by day, a cyclist and blogger by night, a single mommy by life. I ride every chance I get. I'm learning that both cycling and life are easier when you're in the right gear.
Cat A. Brasseur, @According2Cat, writes about her adventures getting back on a bike, at the age of 49, to lose weight (50 pounds) and get in shape after 25 years, two divorces and four children...and recently cancer. She's discovering that being in the right gear (and frame of mind) makes all the difference between an enjoyable ride or a struggle. It's not always easy, but it sure is fun...except for the part about the flat tires and pedals falling off.
