What We Ride: Sharon Constantino

'06 Raleigh Route 66

Sharon Constantino and her 2006 Raleigh Route 66

Sharon Constantino has served as the Office Manager for Century Cycles since 2004, working out of the Peninsula store. She purchased her '06 Raleigh Route 66 in the spring of 2006.

She praises the flat-bar road bike mainly for its versatility. It takes her quickly and comfortably on all the types of riding she like to do, from casual spins with friends on the Towpath Trail, to long rides on the road. "I've done the Bike MS Pedal to the Point five times, but that was before I got this bike," she reports. "However, I did do the Rainbow Hospital Emerald Necklace tour on my Raleigh."

Sharon equipped the bike with most of the usual accessories--water bottle cages, CatEye cyclocomputer, and bar-ends. Plus, she upgraded the stock tires to something a little wider, to provide better grip on the Towpath, but still roll well on pavement.

Sharon uses the Shimano PD-M324 clipless pedals, which make the bike even more versatile. The clip-in side works with cycling shoes for long rides, while the platform side works with casual shoes, which is great for short jaunts, such as down to the community swimming pool. "In fact, my family and I rode our bikes, rather than drive, every time we went to the pool last summer," Sharon said.
