Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Joanna Trieger discovered the diamond in the rough that is Reno, Nevada in 2014 and has been loving life at the base of the Sierras ever since. She is a safe streets advocate and avid bike commuter who hasn't driven to work in more than five years, so she knows a thing or two about gear that works for cyclists. When she's not pedaling around town with her fearless niece in tow, Joanna can be found falling off mountain bikes, falling on skis, or falling while running on her favorite east-side trails.
