An emergency Bikernet Editorial Staff meeting was called at 3:00 in the morning to discuss the new staff title for Betsy, a longtime rider, adventurer, and journalist for several female riding journals. You might be able to help us. The staff was too hungover to gather the appropriate terms. We came up with Official Bikernet Chick Cycle Correspondent Queen. It's a working title, but we're damn happy to have her on board. Here's a teaser of articles to come:

"I write my columns with a #2 pencil and paper while I'm traveling. So the ones I've written that I just need to type into my computer are:

1. My annual summer travels and Sturgis trek - lots of cool event photos in Sturgis, and quieter journey photos with family en route.
2. My Grizzly Kodiak Alaskan Adventure - got to visit the new Grizzly Man while he was filming for Animal Planet with a dozen Grizzlys at the rivers edge. One of the most exciting days of my life!"

We'll bring you more Betsy article notions and teasers for future columns in the Bikernet News this week. And watch for her covering the California Bike Week and the Love Ride.
