Krista McNamee works at the Century Cycles store in Rocky River. In 2008, she was looking for a bike that could handle rough trails and unpaved roads, and she chose the Surly Cross-Check. She preferred the comfortable ride that its steel frame provides, and the versatility and customizability of the bike. All of these features came in handy when she took the bike on a trip down the Great Allegheny Passage/C&O Canal Towpath Trail later that year. Krista is currently preparing for a three-week, 900-mile bike tour in Nova Scotia.
