Zeb and I made it to the final race of the Southern Classic Series today! It was fun seeing our buddy Miles and a bunch of our JA King teammates too. Even though I got third in today’s race I held onto enough points to be the regional champion for the women, and Zeb was the champion for the men! I only date him cause he’s fast.
Still no post graduation plans unless you count playing at camp every day and living the bike dream. Only 7 days left until nationals in Snowshoe, WV! I can probably delay being a real person at least that long #mtbnationals#racecountdown#whatgraduationplans 📸: @supercycling
Finally breaking my streak of second place finishes this week with the @reebranch Short Track on Wednesday and the @southernclassicmtb XC race in Spartanburg yesterday! Shoutout to @ninatheninja4 for being the best coach and giving me intervals I love to hate 😅 Counting down to nationals in 25 days #yaybikes#southernclassicmtb#jakingmtbteam#ctsathlete 📸: Ray Adams
Guess who turned 20 today! This mountain loving, journal crazy, tmi sharing, lentil eating, wooly worm squishing, fast running, theater geek is finally not a teen. Stop having so much fun without me in Seattle - can’t wait to celebrate when you’re back!
Today I saw a camper crouched by the bank of the lake- “I want to hold a frog but I’ve never caught one before. Can you help?” Before the end of the hour, we had found two water spiders, a dragon fly, some salamanders, fish eggs, and seven little frogs all in different life cycle stages. Nature is pretty neat. #neature#professionalfrogcatcher#paidtoplay
Yesterday I couldn’t believe I took a wrong turn in the race and went on my own little trip off course... but so it goes 🤷🏼♀️🚲Today I couldn’t believe this is my backyard. Every day spent on a bike is a good day #worldbicycleday#yaybikes
It was a hot one in Chattanooga, but thank goodness for races with no mud or mechanicals. Gonna have to find an excuse to ride again here soon - mostly I just want to come back for those nachos 😋🌮🚴♀️ #willraceforsnacks#jaking#serc
Coming down Pilot Mountain in a thunderstorm with minimal brake pad left is terrifying- I think @iconmediaasheville caught me smiling because I made it to the bottom without dying, whew. Thankful for an exciting weekend of racing - I guess race blogs are the trend now, so I’ve got a link in my bio if you want to read more about what my bike and I have been up to lately ☺️🚲🎉 #livingthedream#pisgahproductions#southernclassicseries#jakingmtbteam https://annieridesbikes.wordpress.com/blog/
Seven soggy hours later...the Pisgah 55.5k turned into a 50 miler, but thanks to pockets full of snacks and the lightning forcing me to go faster I survived (my brake pads didn’t) 🚲🌧🎉 #sorrybike#pisgahproductions#jaking#ctsathlete
Took a trip up to Virginia with @zebulonr for the #southernclassicmtb series Virginia MTB State Championship - and even though calling it a strawberry “festival” was a little generous, we also got a ton of strawberries in Stuart VA to fuel the drive home! We both got 2nd place in super muddy, muggy, and fun races. In the second picture you can decide whether I’m trying to get mud or strawberry seeds out of my teeth. Probably both 🍓🚲 #jaking#southernclassic#bootleggersblitz
