Kandace Chapple

I am the owner of Michigan Girl and a freelance writer. I love mountain biking & I love writing. Sometimes the two collide. I write funny stuff and sadder stuff too - about the loss of my mother and how nature heals, out on your bike, in the woods, in the rain.

I also host a women’s hike & bike group in Michigan, which sometimes includes caramel vodka.

Writer, mom, mountain biking gal. I love to write funny stuff and gritty stuff - and by that, I mean dirt on the trail and overcoming loss on and off the trail.
