Boulder Cyclist Evelyn Stevens Making A Name For Herself

BOULDER, Colo. (CBS News) – “This is my office now, kind of incredible right?” said Evelyn Stevens, while riding her bicycle on a Colorado road.

What’s incredible is that the 30-year-old is even on a bike. Just five years ago she worked on Wall Street and knew nothing about cycling.

“I just wanted to feel freer,” she said. “I used to always sit in conference rooms and look out the window and think I wish I could just fly away.”

On a whim, Stevens’ sister entered her into a bike race, and she just kept on rolling — quitting her job and trading “the street” for the open road.
