Really looking forward to harvesting this incoming snow - but when powder isn’t an option, ripping laps inbounds has been a pretty great alternative! Again again!

What an end to an amazing 1st year of bike racing...Silver at the National Hill Climb Championships at the beautiful but brutal Pea Royd Lane in Sheffield.

I won't lie I'm was little disappointed to finish 2nd by the tiniest margin of 0.6s but Fiona Burnie was simply better on the day and there are very few more deserving winners. I know how much she has lived, breathed and sacrificed for this and planned it to perfect with coach @dan_grieves. A really well deserved victory! 
I have no regrets with the decisions I made in the run up to the race or how I rode it and after the unbelievably successful season I have had this result is a bonus...from my 1st race in March, winning @cvrworldcup Vancouver, to getting a ride with the fabulous @teamjadanweldtite, winning my first road race(s), winning a @britishcycling National Road Title, riding my 1st International Stage Race at the amazing @rasnamban and making the semi-finals of @wmncycling @gozwift #ZwiftAcademy I am still slightly overwhelmed!

None of this would have been possible without the brilliant @beaconbikes BF100 riding like a dream and being kept in tip-top shape by the guys Eddie, Spike & Rob at @thefell_01...cheers for the banter too! The support of team manager @vixhoodvixhood and sponsors #JadanPress, @vive_velo, @weldtite, @bioracer_uk and finally Yorkshir Road Club's legend Phil Hurt for his continuous support and enthusiasm... BRING ON NEXT YEAR 😀

p.s. thanks for another great pain face @ellenisherwood

At 12:20 we got it done. 18hrs and close to 300km.  Learned halfway through the day that with the switch from McNeilly access to Fifty road access that I only had to do 80 instead of 92 escarpment climbs to achieve 8800m of elevation. 
As a team we climbed 287 times, and almost reached our $8800 fundraising goal. Thanks to everyone who donated.  It was wet and windy, the weather was a big challenge.

That awkward moment when you’re questioning your life choices.... I could be off-seasoning but opted for a mini hill climb adventure instead. Been really fun challenging my top end and when 373w/6watts per kilo is only good enough for a top 20 finish you’ve got to have respect for these weight weenies. One more race at the south district hill climb next weekend then I’ll be off seasoning like a pro. Thanks @bikeonscott for the loaner of the Addict - beaut of a bike and @rachaeljelliott for the wheels.

"Nothing in life worth chasing comes easy" 
The brilliant Lacncashire Road Club  Rake Hill Climb in Ramsbottom yesterday is a brutal climb with a real sting in the tail at 25% gradient to finish. The pain was real! 
Really happy with my ride (aside from blowing up a little - probably just about at the point of the photo 🤣), breaking the CR only for it to be broken by the formidable Fiona Burnie by 0.8 of a second! Tiny margins but great to blow away the cobwebs into the 2018 season 👍

A snap from yesterday’s #hillclimb of @jacobvezey back on the road today for another one #hillclimbgroupie #cyclinggroupie #cyclinguphills #cycling #bikes #hills #rideuphill #pain #cycle
Yesterday was FM, Faroese Championship, riding Criterium in the Heart of Tórshavn, I finished fourth to mine an the rest of the pack surprise.
Today it was FM Time Trial, a tough One hill 9,6 km with 600m elevation and a 20% incline at the very end.
I finished 1min11sec better than last year, and very happy.
Reaching the finish line at 690 Moh it was snowing.

That was steep. Mt. Hebo/Little Hebo Traverse. Over 3k vertical gain in the first 9 miles 🙃. Shoutout to the nicest forest service rangers I’ve ever met.

Friends make other friends hurt. Showed @1000milesfrom_nowhere how awesome the coastal range is. One flat tire but plenty of single track and smiles.

I really can't believe I waited so long to start mountain biking. It is just SO. MUCH. DAMN. FUN. [Cue a chorus of my friends shaking their heads, saying Duh, woman. We've been telling you that for years.] Today's fun was most definitely earned with almost 10 miles of non-stop uphill. #mountainbiking #earnyourflow #noliftshere #pcmr #rideutah #rideuphill #womenmtb #womenwhoshred #beaUTAHful #optoutside #mtb #wasatchcrest #bikesarefun #rideandgrind #downhillflow

I've been mostly off the road bike while I tried to be a good athlete and let a cranky hamstring get uncranky. I got back at it last night with a surprisingly fast spin up my favorite canyon and was greeted by perfection in the form of the late evening light on the surrounding hills. And I even got cold on the way down. Maybe we will get fall after all...? I just fucking love this place. 🍁🚵‍♀️🍂🍃#beaUTAHful #optoutside #lifeelevated #bikeutah #ridebikes #cycling #roadbike #specialized #rideuphill #fallisintheair #atleastforafewdays #nomoresummer Time for #rocktober #fallcycling #tistheseason

It’s time for an easy spin on the CX bike, one which started with thick fog just before sunrise. This climb is far from easy, which is why it’s earned the name “Horror Hill.” #morningride #cyclocrossride #outsideisfree #bikeride #foggyride #rideuphill #rideuphills #cyclocrossseason #fallride #spokz #spokzcycling #spokzapp #spokzlife #beyourownphotographer #cyclingphotography #cyclingphotos

They say it’s the hardest climb in the world. I think they might be right. You really get to take in and appreciate the changing landscape when you slowly ride from the ocean to a 4,200m volcano. #cycling #rideuphill #earnyourturns #maunakea #hawaii #bikes #rulenumber5

4 began. 2 finished. Some were sacrificed at the altar. But all are certainly satiated. The amount of discomfort a bike can put you through is equally proportional to the amount of fun a bike can put you through. #makethemhurt

We did this thing. You ride up a steep grade. Said grade is sand with elephant gravel loosely set on top. @c_turney didn’t die. Then we ate 2 lunches each. Bikes are so great.

Huge thanks to @wheelsofjusticeutah for making it possible for me to fulfill a major cycling bucket list item. A guaranteed entry for the 2019 LOTOJA (notoriously hard to get a spot in, especially if you've never ridden it before) means year 2 of this cycling journey will have lots more training, lots more miles, and lots more learning.

Year two taking on queen stage of the #tourofutah with the Ultimate Challenge ride was amazing and hard AF. Climbing LCC up to Snowbird after 90ish miles - including the grind from PC to Guardsman Pass - took absolutely everything I had, especially in this heat and smoke. When you dump an entire water bottle on your head and are overheating again within 2 mins, you know it's bad 🔥It also took #allthecarbs 😂

My loose goal was to be sub 7 hours moving time, hit 6:30 moving and 6:50 total. Picked up some #strava hardware, which is always nice. #goalsmet #behardtokill #justride #shutuplegs #tuc #theultimatechallenge #lcc #littlecottonwoodcanyon #bikeutah #rideuphill #ridebikes #cycleutah #roadbike #cycling #optoutside #lifeelevated #everythinghurts #everythinghurtsandimdying #sorryhamstrings #wheelsofjustice

I like sharing these mountains. I took @bryanmarugg on a little two wheel uphill excursion in the lower coastal mountains this morning. It’s pretty cool when the first time you have been on a bike since you were a kid, is on steep gravel roads while dodging pot holes and bear poop. He’s a natural born crusher.

Aaaah my heart is so happy after a day of pedaling with @jimtjar and @el_reido! St Helens is such an incredible zone, a juxtaposition of lush forests and volcanic devastation. It was super interesting to ride through the transitions. One could even say we had a blast.

Some days you just race like you did when you were a kid. You put aside expectations and throttle yourself to be first to the line.
.
.
I made a dumb mistake yesterday in the road race that left me unnecessarily back in the omnium. So, today was back to basics. Start smooth. Get to base of hill, fast. Then empty the tank until your lungs explode. .
.
I’m learning (slowly) not to over or under hype any performance. Yesterday had errors, today did not. And tomorrow is a new day. It’s best not to get too down on yourself when you make mistakes (it happens) or to buy too much into the hype when you succeed (the universe has a way of smacking you down when you do). .

It’s taken me a while to learn this lesson and I’ve only recently started to get it. 📸 @higuchiphotos

Hardest ride of 2018 Ultimate Challenge #tuc training done today. Probably my hardest ride since last year's TUC. Happy with the results for yet another solo training session. I'm still not sure I can say I feel "ready" for 98 miles and 10,000ft of vert with 4000ft coming in the final 8 miles...but I've done as much as I can to get ready. My body and recovery feel great and on bike fueling is dialed in thanks as always to nutrition guru @craigeroo7. #letsdothis #ridebikes #ridebikesfast #rideuphill #bigcottonwoodcanyon #millcreekcanyon #emigrationcanyon #threecanyons #allthevert #cycleutah #bikeutah #wasatchbiking #tuc #theultimatechallenge #tourofutah #trainhard

Canyon creek. What an awesome day off, we were chased by a summer storm all morning, but back at the truck before the lightning.
This is the first year in 22 years, I've had to take a season off climbing due to injury, feeling super thankful for still being able to get into the mountains and for the people who will go exploring with me.

First of two Crest rides this week. I crushed my Puke Hill ascent time and blew away my descent time. Cruised the easy path through the spine again (maybe time to start working the proper line) and generally had a blast of an evening. I am definitely in the honeymoon stage of being a beginner at something - enough progress to feel kinda sorta competent but not yet enough to disappoint myself by not meeting expectations. #mountainbiking #wasatchbiking #wasatchcrest #bikeutah #beaUTAHful #lifeelevated #optoutside #beginnermind #happyplace #cresttrail #pukehill #rideuphill #thendownhill #earnyourturns

The number of cars I dealt with on my ride are the exact number featured in this photo. A whole lotta single trackin’ this morning. #makethemhurt

La Mosca Bicicleta...70 miles of tarmac, dirt and gravel. Hate to admit (some people are right), I might not be recovered from the TABR...but felt pretty good til last 8 miles where we gained about 2,500ft.

Colorado sure is pretty for riding. And steep. And also windy AF. But pretty 😊 #roadbike #roadbiking #colorado #canyonrides #ristcanyon #poudrecanyon #rideuphill #trainhard #tuc #tuctraining #wheelsofjustice #optoutside #happyplace #mountainliving
Slightly masochistic. Slightly awesome. Ball Bearing Hill repeats this morning (via Von Rd). Almost 5k ft of steep and technical climbing on gravel and ruts, packed into a measly 26 miles. I managed 3 laps before I had to get to work. Not a single car around so the only sounds were my huffing & puffing, a solid hip-hop playlist and the Flaanimal with a sadistic whisper of “give me more young man”. 🦄 #makethemhurt

Do things with people who are better at them than you. It will be humbling. It could be frustrating. It might hurt. It might leave you dripping with sweat wondering what happened to that fitness you thought you had. But you will learn so, so much. And it will be fun as shit too. #mountainbiking #bikeutah #cycleutah #mtnbiking #optoutside #rideuphill #ridefast #ridehard #beaUTAHful #lifeelevated #lifeinutah #pcmr #specialized #fullsuspension
And that's a wrap! 5 days of singletrack shredding with this awesome family; exploring the alpine, riding hard, and five star dining and relaxing. Great week to spend in the backyard with @irwinguides @elevenexperience @reed_betz, I feel lucky to call this place home.

Taking a break from days of shredding single track to work on skills at the dirt jump park. Family fun day on Day 4 of the Singletrack Sessions with @irwinguides @elevenexperience

The Oregon Coastal Mountain version of cobblestones... loose, mean & steep. Gathered some recon the hard way today. I got an itch that needs scratchin’. Kutch Mtn to Trask Mtn. #GoingUp

Fantastic ride this morning. Didn't go far but the sun was shining. Not much wind and quiet roads.
