Laura is originally from Barcelona (Spain), where she learned to ride when she was a kid. For several years biking was just a sporadic hobby or a way of commuting for her, but that changed when she moved to Boston for work as a psychiatric genetics researcher, in 2019. After her first week in the city, she bought a used Univega Sportour vintage road bike from the 80’s and she started riding to discover Boston and its surroundings. When the pandemic hit, that was her “escape route” and she kept adding miles and miles to her rides. She soon felt that she needed to upgrade to a bike that would let she enjoy dirt and gravel roads and ride surrounded by nature. Thus, she decided to buy a Jamis Renegade S4 gravel bike (Jamis Bikes is a women owned company!) and ended up doing more than 1000 miles in one year.

She enjoys all outdoor activities (when she’s not biking, you can find her playing volleyball, surfing, climbing, or hiking) and she loves discovering new places and routes in New England (Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine have stolen her heart!). Combining gravel biking with camping is one of the best things that she discovered lately, so she always tries to plan some biking or bikepacking weekend trips to deeply explore (and ride!) new England trails and forests. The perfect ride for her usually involves sharing it with friends and she looks forward to “virtually” sharing it with you too!
