Style, art, and entrepreneurship keep the founder of Charleston Cycle Chic’s wheels spinning

Style, art, and entrepreneurship keep the founder of Charleston Cycle Chic’s wheels spinning


 

 

Kitten Confidential: “My husband, Randy, and I got a pair of kitties a few months ago. I fell in love with Bug, the white one, and Boo cuddled up to Randy.”


 

 

 

 

Sentimental Value: “My love for vintage necklaces started after my grandmother died. She had a box of costume jewelry, and I started wearing pieces as reminders of her.”


 

 

 

 

 

 

Great Lengths: “I love maxi dresses-more elegant than a T-shirt and shorts but just as comfortable."


 

 

 

 

Chalked Up: "Randy and I covered the side of our cabinet in blackboard paint. every New Year's, we wipe it clean and start over."


 

Lens Crafter: “In my dream parallel life, I would be a famous photographer. But in reality, it’s just a hobby. I’m good with people and nature.”


 

 

 

 

Words to Live By: “Rainer Maria Rilke’s work has pushed me to be courageous, adventurous, patient, and accepting of ‘now.’”

 

 


 

 

Artistic Movement: “This butterfly mobile hangs in my kitchen. Even as a broke grad school student, I just had to have it!”


 

 

 

Patent Approval:“I have about six years worth of patent leather shoes. They add a little diva to any outfit.”


Essentials:

Home Life: “I enjoy outdoor activities, inventing recipes, and sitting on the porch talking with my husband and friends.”

Ride Share: After discovering Copenhagen Cycle Chic, Kristin began Charleston’s chapter “to get more women on bikes. Spandex isn’t required—wear high heels!”

Brave Heart: “One thing every woman should have is courage to step out of her comfort zone and live her dream.”

Going Pro: “I wanted to incorporate my love of bicycling, so I started Pedal to Properties. I show real estate by bike.”
