Jeannine Anders followed “The Call” to Colorado 15 years ago where she settled in the Vail Valley. Many of us have heard a similar call – one to the mountains, right? She held a career in sales while pursuing her passion for cycling. She’s competed in over 20 ultra-endurance mountain bike races including multiple 100-mile, 12- and 25-hour solo races as well as a multi-day stage race through the Swiss Alps. She eventually joined the board for the non-profit, Sacred Cycle, while managing their race team and helping to spread their mission which is to empower survivors of sexual abuse and sexual assault through therapy and mountain biking, creating a sacred cycle of recovery, personal development, and community impact.
Biking has had an extremely positive influence on Jeannine’s life and we talk about how it defined her – how mountain biking helps all of us in various ways and now, how it is being put to work to help survivors of sexual abuse and assault.
