Meet The Rider Abby Spaedt # 846

Abby is back for another ride. Although it took her a long time to reach the finish line, despite all the obstacles she had to face once she started the event she didn't know would be obstacles but handled despite living off the back of her motorcycle Abby made it to the finish line. She learned about the Hoka Hey Motorcycle challenge from Heinz at a MC Donald's somewhere in Vermont, these two new friends had breakfast together. Although that was 2010 it wasn't until 2016 the timing worked out for her to participate.

After the sucker punch she was thrown with food allergies and stinging flying things, rain gear that exploded and a shift lever made from zip ties and a hammer handle, she knows she can handle just about anything. Learning a few of her own moves she takes kickboxing classes and skates on an ice hockey team to help stay in shape for this event.

Abby would like to see more attention given to women's riding clothing. She finds it difficult to find serious riding gear for herself because not everything is "one size fits all." Functional but I don't want to look like a man. "

Garden City, CO. is erecting a memorial to the First responder's of Greely Co. and Abby is helping the Harley Davidson dealer raise money for this monument.
