    Alexadera the SSuperhero

    like a fool, I missed the opportunity to meet Alexandera Houchin at an event in Austin this weekend. I don't follow endurance events very closely, but she was the first woman to finish the 2018 Tour Divide, and did so on a rigid singlespeed Chumba, complete with cut-off jeans and hiking boots. bad ass.

    Great story, I read about her last week for the first time. Woman wins Tour Divide on a Ti SS!!

    I was surprised to see flat pedals too, didn't know about the jean shorts. Ha. Agreed, badass!

    Stop asking how much it weighs and just go ride it.
