CREATIVE DIRECTOR | WEB MASTER
Lura got her first city bike the summer of 2011, an old Schwinn Varsity with petals that kept breaking off because it was her only mode of transportation during college. Now, she bikes for fun & beer, while keeping WBC's online community up-to-date on all things bikes.
