Rebecca A. Eckland was once a runner and always a nutcase, and these days is a cyclist both on and off the road. As a USAC Cat 3 Road racer who competes under the Clean Power Powered by Tesla flag, the former Ironman triathlete and marathoner, Eckland is up for adventure every single day! Fun fact: she was the first woman from Nevada to win the 600-mile California Triple Crown Stage Race (road cycling), and holds several course records in the Silver State 508. She's also kind of a nerd, who keeps a real job writing grants for an organization that helps at-risk youth, has published a book and a handful of literary essays thanks to an MFA degree awarded by Saint Mary's College of CA in Creative Nonfiction writing, and two other MAs from the University of Nevada, Reno. When not riding like--or against--the wind, this girl is raising chickens and bees, super urban farmer-style.
