The Rider Support Program

Andrew Spiers (he/him)

Andrew Spiers is a queer, trans man who lives in Philadelphia with his wife, two dogs, three cats, and a rotating cast of rescue animals. He discovered his love of cycling early in the pandemic and has been consumed by all things bike ever since.

Andrew currently rides for The Big Heat, an amateur women/trans/non-binary/femme team, and enjoys randonneuring, endurance gravel events, flowy mountain bike trails, and duathlons.

When not on the bike, he can be found reading, camping, exploring National Parks, or teaching others about best practices for ending homelessness in their communities.

Terrelia Owens (she/her)

Terrelia Owens is from Dallas, Texas, and she had her first experience with gravel at SBT Gravel in 2023 as a Ride for Racial Justice athlete. Since then, she has partnered with KRT/QRT out of Philadelphia to organize a Dallas chapter and hopes to participate in many local races here in Texas.

Terrelia is an active advocate for bridging the racial divide in sports, and her mission is to continue representing and supporting BIPOC athletes within the cycling community.

Let’s all Learn Together!

In 2024, the educational series, which previously was only for members of the support program, is now open to the entire community.

The speakers are stellar and the information helps you easily crack the codes of hydration, nutrition, training, goal-setting, mindfulness, and just overall insight for your cycling journey.
