Before CX, Gravel Worlds

Gravel Worlds, a 150-mile gravel race around Lincoln, Nebraska, is a must-do for many local cyclists, including those on GPCTCX, who if they didn't ride (Jen, Rachel, Allison, and Russell), helped out and cheered others on.

This was my second Gravel Worlds. The first half was mostly on roads I had never been on before, which was lots of fun. I was pleased to improve my time by 3 hours 22 minutes compared to 2016, on a course that was 7 miles longer than the 2016 course. Rachel Gehringer-Wiar
While I couldn't ride Gravel Worlds this year due to a health issue, I had an incredible experience volunteering and providing support. My friend and I staffed a "roving oasis," where we popped up on various remote roads with snacks and water. I've never seen so many people greet sliced watermelon with such enthusiasm! 
Volunteering flipped my Gravel Worlds experience by 180 degrees. As a racer in endurance events like this, I'm focused only on personal survi…

Pastries, Pros, & Last Minute Racing - A Jingle Cross Recap

A year ago at Jingle Cross 2016 I truly fell in love with cyclocross. It's hard to watch the pro women race (sorry guys, I think the women's races are more fun) and not fall in love with the beauty of it all. The technical climbs, daring descents, and fun elements (think sand pits and run-ups) make Jingle Cross as fun to spectate as it is to race. This year, I was totally bummed to realize I had an event for my new job the Friday of Jingle Cross and wouldn't be able to attend. I had made my peace with not going months ago, so, imagine my joy when my boss told me to take the Friday off since I had been putting in so many hours. There was one problem, due to my new job and being sick I hadn't trained at all for the season. I finally settled on just spectating for the weekend. A nice weekend of watching the pros rip up the course sounded the like the best stress relief.

I found out I could head to Iowa a week before Jingle Cross started and after chatting with Rachel, wh…

Goldenrod Pastries Cyclocross Team aims to spread CX love with newer racers

In a bid to spread the love of cyclocross, pastries, and living well in general, local pastry chef and bakery owner, Angela Garbacz joined forces with Sydney Brown and Monkey Wrench Cycles to form a small sponsored racing team for the 2015 cyclocross season. 

The premise of the team is that by giving these newer cyclocross racers a concentrated boost of support in terms of equipment, racecraft, and social support, we will help spread cyclocross and cycling faster because of a few key characteristics:  
Newer racers  tend to have an infectious enthusiasm for the sport They may be more relatable to non- and new cyclists than elite racers Their social networks are not yet saturated with other racers and committed cyclists
“Podium pictures don’t bring in new riders, friendliness and fun does,” Brown said.
Because the group is based in Lincoln, Nebraska where Brown, and Garbacz already have extensive contacts, the two looked for applicants who were active in social media and whose networks had…
