In 2018, 3 years after she’d moved to Atlanta, Devin purchased her first geared bike. In an effort to find community, she took her first bike camping trip with a couple of friends. That’s when everything changed.

She’s excited to bike along the coast of Croatia with her partner this summer 🙂 Devin can most often be found brewing strong coffee outside on the ancestral lands of the Muscogee Creek Nation, today known as Atlanta, Georgia.
Q&A With Devin
Being surrounded by the community while riding bikes. I can ride solo a million times, but nothing brings me more joy than a 68 degree day bike ride with black and brown folks laughing nonstop. I consider it a privilege to have the opportunity on a regular basis. It truly keeps me going.
