I’m small and I manage to ignore that fact most of the time. I clocked the scale at 106 lbs this morning. In nearly every sport being small is a disadvantage.

I have a lot of fun pedaling.
I have been super excited to do some bikepacking this summer. That involves lots and lots of pedaling. This package arrived in the mail today from Carosel Design Works for moi. Oooh exciting.
