Tonight in Anchorage!- “The First Season on the Baja Divide: Media, Women’s Scholarship, and Lael’s FKT”

Lael and I are back in Anchorage and have begun working at The Bicycle Shop on Northern Lights Blvd, so you will be able to find us there for the next few months. We’d love to help you plan for a ride, race, or long tour and we have tons of bikepacking equipment in stock this season!

Tonight, we host an event to discuss the first season on the Baja Divide, and will share new videos from our friends Tales on Tyres and Holly Wade, as well as images from the group start and Lael’s FKT ride. Snacks and beverages provided, including ice cold Tecate, of course. Parking is available at The Bicycle Shop and at Sweet Basil Cafe next door. Or, ride your bike to the event!

This event is being held to raise money for Lael’s newest project, a middle-school girl’s bike mentorship program called Anchorage GRIT. Bring cash to support the project! See you at The Bicycle Shop.

Westchester Lagoon Ice Criterium

Winter biking gearheads and cycling nuts gathered around burn barrels Saturday night at Westchester Lagoon for the annual Ice Criterium around the 400m loop. Two person teams race 10 laps around the glazed oval, switching riders every lap. Teams ride a single bike, passing the “baton” by swapping a pair of boxer shorts worn over top of their clothing. Schwalbe Ice Spiker Pros and Nokian 294 Extremes were well represented.
