We SPOTTED Ms. Shelton with New Wheels!

Happy July!

I hope everyone is finding fun ways to beat the heat this summer. Today was a bit cooler, so I decided to ride my new bike to work. Her name is Rocinante, and she’s an electric bike that I recently purchased. Here is a pic of her in the WAVA offices. Right now, the summer is full of work projects and planning (handbooks, schedules, and more!). But later this month, I will be visiting Knoxville, TN and Lexington, KY to see family. Though, I’ve opted for riding in an airplane over pedaling across the U.S.A. 😉

I can’t wait to hear about all the fun things you’re up to this summer! Be sure to tag WAVA in your photos on social media!
