Come to Firetrucker Brewery to hear about Andrea's Tour Divide experience this past June. She'll tell us a story and there will be some Q & A time afterwards.

Salsa Cycles sponsored rider, Andrea Cohen, this past June competed in the grueling 2,745 mile Tour Divide an annual mountain biking race traversing the length of the Rocky Mountains from Banff Canada to the Antelope Wells NM. It is an ultra-distance cycling ride that is an extreme test of endurance, self-reliance and mental toughness.

In addition, Andrea has competed in 5 Trans Iowas, 5 Dirty Kanzas and several Gravel Worlds and just about every other gravel and mountain bike race in the mid-west.

Andrea teaches bicycle-related classes and started The Gravel Scouts, that introduces cyclist to riding gravel.

Here is some information BIKEIOWA posted BEFORE she left on her trip.
