I am first generation born and raised in New Jersey by Peruvian Immigrant Angel parents. I grew up with little to no interest in bikes until I met my husband 3 years ago. The need to challenge myself physically and mentally keeps me on the saddle (rarely because I love working) and running two businesses. My husband, Matt and I own/run Crust Bikes and I recently started Casa Verde, a bicycle/ outdoor clothing brand that will hopefully fill the void of women’s needs in cycling-specific clothing.
