Ann now speaks to bicycling groups and clubs across the state about their members’ rights and responsibilities and bicycling advocacy and culture. She is a regular participant and presenter at the annual North Carolina Bicycle Summit. She works hard to promote bicycling, in particular women’s bicycling, and is a member of a local women’s race team. She has written the Ride Guide, to be used by bicyclists, motor vehicle drivers, police officers and anyone interested in understanding North Carolina’s rules of the road as they pertain to bicycles.
