Girls Gone Gravel is a community of women empowered to chase their big adventures.

    Rosie Up with Paige Onweller (Episode 183)

    Rosie Up with Paige Onweller (Episode 183)

    Paige Onweller recently finished 3rd place at Unbound Gravel in that iconic nine woman sprint finish in the 200 mile race. This impressive finish gained her some key points in the Life Time Grand Prix. What makes this finish even more impressive, is that it was just 12 weeks after Paige underwent surgery on her right ankle to repair a torn ligament. In this episode, Kathryn and Kristi are chatting with Paige a couple of weeks before Unbound. She goes into detail about the ankle injury that she sustained while out on a mountain bike training ride, and also gives us an in-depth look at all of the hard work and intentionality that went into her recovery process. This is Paige’s second season as a full-time pro, and she talks through her decision to leave the #vanlife behind this year, and set up a home base for herself in Bentonville. Paige is also launching a new business this fall, called Rosie Up, aimed at helping to propel women into pursuing off-road racing full time in the US and she tells us about her inspiration for starting the business, and why she was propelled to get it off the ground as soon as possible.

    From Soigneur to Gravel Pro with Geerike Schreurs (Episode 182)

    From Soigneur to Gravel Pro with Geerike Schreurs (Episode 182)

    Geerike “Gee” Schruers was a soigneur on the women’s pro tour for over 10 years, taking care of some of the best riders in the world to help them perform at their best. However, last year she was tempted by the growing gravel scene, and made the jump to professional racing herself. Gee joined up with Specialized and is the only Specialized/SD Worx rider that focuses solely on gravel. She tells us about joining up with the rest of the road team for her very first training camp, and what she learned from her years as a soigneur that she is now applying to her own training and racing. Gee finished second at Unbound 2024 in an historic 9 women sprint to the finish line after 200 miles of some of the best and most dynamic women’s gravel racing we have ever seen. She outlines her plans for the rest of the season, and talks about where she thinks women’s cycling is heading in the future.

    **REBROADCAST** Training Tips for Your Big Adventure with Scotti Moody (Episode 169)

    **REBROADCAST** Training Tips for Your Big Adventure with Scotti Moody (Episode 169)

    If you’ve ever thought about taking on a long gravel adventure but don’t know where to start or even if you are familiar with longer gravel events but want to sharpen up your training, this episode is for you! Kathryn and Kristi are joined this week by professional cyclist and cycling coach Scotti Moody. Scotti has taken on (and won) many ultra-endurance cycling events, which gives her the unique insight as a coach into exactly what it takes to not just finish but thrive during these events. She gives us her coach’s perspective on how to prepare for longer, and multi-day events, and breaks down an ideal training week. Scotti also highlights some essential training equipment for all cyclists, and highlights why it is important to accept recovery.
    Scotti is also planning her own multi-day gravel festival in NW Arkansas this summer. It is called the Arkansas Graveler, and will take place from June 23-28. It is a fully supported event that will cover 340 miles over 6 days. Check out the event on social media @arkansas_graveler

Stoked, pumped, inspired

As a fellow adventure-seeker I’m so inspired by these stories. I want to try it all, and have yet to make it to mountain biking yet, but be assured it’s on the docket!

Girl power fuel!

Thank you guys for this awesome podcast, I feel like I made new friends, and I am learning so much!
You guys should interview Cynthia Frazier, she is the organizer of the race Gravista in Virginia and just an absolute beast on the bike. She won Unbound XL this year.
