This week the ladies of Team EPS/CSS Shebell&Shebell would like to introduce you to Alexa Gubinski!! Alexa has been racing bikes since 2014 and she loves races that are LONG and HILLY!!! Check out some other things we learned about Alexa when we asked her a few more questions about herself!!
Where is the coolest place you have ever ridden your bike?
I actually love riding in Connecticut, where you can go from a scenic beach tour to rolling backroads on one ride. But the coolest has to be racing up Mt. Washington.
What is the craziest thing you have ever done and would you do it again?
As part of a support crew for a Race Across America team, I once slept 6 ½ hours hours in nearly 7 days. I would 100% not do that part of it again!
If you could give one piece of advice to women who are considering entering a cycling race what would it be?
Do it! I think the key is finding the right balance (for you) between pushing yourself to try something new, or scary, and still feeling a little bit comfortable. Start small and use the confidence you gain to keep trying new things!
