Welcome to Conkey Cruisers



Hey Lady!

ARE YOU on probation?

One day while jogging around her neighborhood, Theresa Bowick was accused of both being the police and running from them. The thought of someone just jogging around the area for exercise, was foreign to her neighbors. Theresa was both saddened and empowered by her interactions that day. She knew something must be done to change the image of health and wellness. She prayed and plotted. A year later, she founded the Conkey Cruisers!. Originally A bicycle to better heath initiative, Now, its much more than that.
