July 2021, the Lady Gravel Cyclist began her journey into the world of cycling. LGC has an athletic background but started at ground zero, aboard a humble indoor trainer.
Aboard the trainer, LGC learned basics such as shifting gears, simulated climbing, and clipless pedals. Around the middle of November 2021, LGC headed outside for her first ride on clipless pedals, and from there, she has blossomed.
In this video, LGC joins JOM for an intro to climbing and descending, near Ellijay, Georgia. North Georgia’s mountains may not be as high as the peaks of Colorado, but the mixed-surface roads in particular feature steep grades and descents, terrain that challenges the technical abilities of most riders.

LGC has joined group rides, and completed two mixed-surface 100 mile rides, one being the toughest edition of the Dirty Pecan to date, the 2022 edition.
