Wendy Ellis

Wendy likes being outside on a bike with everything she needs for a long distance adventure on- or off-road, preferably where there are mountains. You may also find her on a fixed gear, unsuccessfully going around courses with too many tight corners. Based in France, she is always looking for ways to perfect her baguette-in-cycling-jersey technique.
