‘Toon master illustrates proud locals:  Meet the domesticated bike-polo player

Heck on wheels


Who:
Fran Badgett

Age: 25

Spotted while: Exiting from Great American Hero on Lemmon Avenue, frozen yogurt in hand and sporting an amazing tattoo tapestry on both arms.
Occupation: Bookseller

Dyke on bike: This Dallas native migrated to Chicago to build bicycles and work as a two-wheeling courier. She returned to Big D after an on-the-job injury — a bus hit her.
Freetime fun: Playing haphazard kickball and bike polo.

Domestic diva: One of Fran’s favorite wateringholes was along Maple Avenue. But she’s traded her barstool for spending time around the house with her partner.
Community support: Youth First Texas advocate.
