Trail and Travel Gear Feature
Excerpt: I’m always excited to find a new brand, especially when it’s a small, independent company that makes high-quality gear AND is committed to sustainability.... I love this medium-sized case. It holds everything I need, and it is darn fancy. I’m an urban gal at heart, and I love having a high-quality bag that works in the outdoors but gives me style cred on the street. I also like that this case is big enough to hold my passport so on my next overseas adventure I can have everything in one place.
How To Air Travel With Your Bike
I often travel to and from gravel events across the country my with my bike, and if you're a first-time bike traveler, this topic will be super helpful.

Amber Neben—Finding Your Own Champion Within
We recently caught up with three-time Olympian, three-time world champion, and six-time national champion Amber Neben to ask about her journey in pursuit of Olympic Gold and her attitudes about facing adversity.
"Adversity is such a part of life. There's no way around it," Neben says. "We can't control what happens to us, but we can control how we respond to it. It starts with small, little things that we face every day. You build character and those habits in responding to little things. It's just like you are in training."
Q&A with World Champion and BaseCamp Coach, Amber Neben
Here at Fierce Hazel we embrace all types of cycling, including indoor training. But what’s our “secret training” to get stronger and keep us fit in the winter? It’s BaseCamp and it’s definitely pure adrenaline Fierce Hazel.
Why do we love it? It’s a training camp where anyone at any level can set their own course for improvement with some of the best cyclists and coaches on the planet.
Don't take out word for it. We sat down with three-time Olympian, three-time world champion, six-time national champion, and BaseCamp coach Amber Neben.

Hazel AF: Biking with Fierce Freedom
Seth Davidson: Cycling to Self Discovery. His journey embodies all that is Fierce Hazel.
This month, we deep dive into the other inspiration for this brand: What does it mean to be Hazel?
To answer that question we are featuring longtime Fierce Hazel supporter and self-proclaimed FHZ product tester, Seth Davidson. At first glance, even with his Hazel eyes, the Southern California lawyer for cyclists, proud father and blogger might seem more fierce than Hazel.
Viva la Paris Parity!
For the first time, the same number of women as men cyclists will be invited to participate. A total of 514 athletes will compete in all cycling events—257 men and 257 women.
A total of five categories make up the cycling sports at the Olympics.
Three of those, BMX, BMX Freestyle Park, and mountain biking, gained gender equity this year in the Tokyo games. The addition of equal competitors for men and women in road and track events brings gender equity to all of the Olympic cycling sports. For the Paris games, road and track cycling events will have equal women and men participants, 90 and 95, respectively.
The Crazy Swede
Göran Kropp wasn't shy of adventure, and on a cold Swedish day in October 1995, he got his bicycle, packed his gear, the whole 170 lbs of it, and then set off. Why so much equipment? Well, this wasn't going to be any regular adventure. He was going to be cycling all the way to Nepal, 7,693 miles to be precise. Four months and 6 days later he finds himself at his destination, Mount Everest base camp, and ready to summit the top.
Yoga is Fierce Self Care
Yoga is Fierce Self Care on all levels. Kundalini Yoga, the yoga of awareness and transformation, is a Fierce Hazel favorite. What we love about yoga is in just a few minutes you can change your attitude, increase your energy, detox, relax and release. Give it a try to gear up for a bike ride or kickstart your day.
