Ashlea started cycle commuting while at university back in 2005 as a way of getting a bit of bike training in for triathlons, and found she rather enjoyed it (along with the extra money left in her pocket). She is a much better bike commuter than triathlete.

Ashlea manages the website for the Australian Walking and Cycling Conference.
