SE Crew: Rosie Dayton
Can ladies wheelie? Of course they can! For a perfect example, check out @oldvolks_chic on her OM Flyer. Not only is she a ripping member of the SE Crew, but she's also one of the coolest people you'll ever meet. Photo by @otb.bmx.
How old are you?
I am 40 years old.
Where do you live?
I live in Stockton, CA.
How many SE bikes do you own?
I own a few: a 2010 Big Ripper, 2016 OM Flyer, DC Quad 26”, gold OM Flyer, Vans Blocks Flyer, PK Ripper, and the new-new OM Flyer.
What’s your favorite place to ride?
My favorite place to ride is my own town, Stockton, CA. It’s been a great feeling bringing bike life to our own community. I feel like the youth in our town really needed something positive to do.
What’s your favorite thing about bike life?
Seeing people happy, smiling, laughing, having fun, and making those lifetime memories is my favorite thing about bike life.
What’s your secret to improving riding skills?
Getting out and putting in the miles is the best way to improve your riding skills. Practicing as often as you can will definitely show results.
What’s something that people may not know about you?
I really struggled to learn how to wheelie. It took a solid year at least, maybe longer to learn. I had many people start with me and start after me, and they passed me right up. But I never gave up, and here I am today sponsored by SE Bikes.
What advice would you give to someone just getting into bike life?
My advice is always about safety. You might crash (or get wormed out), so make sure you have a helmet and some gloves to protect you.
