When I last wrote about “when cycling hurts down there” in July of last year, I thought I had finally figured things out. Turns out, I was still pretty far off. …


I am an endurance rider for Velocio // Exploro, an elite women’s gravel racing team. We were supposed to be tackling Steamboat GRVL, Rebecca’s Private Idaho, and many other endurance events this year, but they have all been canceled. …
