Email or Wetransfer or Dropbox or carrier-pigeon it back to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’d be SUPER grateful for your assist (and will throw a lil sumpin your way for your help)!
Got a Girl Crush On: Ryanne Palermo, Women’s Champion of the 2013 Dirty Dozen
The Dirty Dozen challenges cyclists to ride the steepest hills in Pittsburgh, most ranging between a 25-37% grade. Not only did Ryanne have to finish on a borrowed bike after breaking her derailleur hanger at the top of the steepest hill, she rode the last hill ON A FLAT TIRE. What a badass. Read more about the race here. (FYI, that’s me, Liz, interviewing Ryanne.)

Got a Girl Crush On: Adren Wray’s photos of creatives project, Boots & Pine
"I am inspired by those who use dress as a vehicle for creative expression and for serious fun. Boots & Pine started with my love of people watching and of style, and is growing into something bigger and better than I could’ve imagined. I’ve loved getting to meet and befriend so many wonderful people, and I hope to continue growing this project into the future."
