Mountain Bike Coach Lindsey Richter Shares of Loss, Community, and Hope in Women's Cycling Podcast

Lindsey and Gracie

JACKSON WY — March 20, 2017—   Overcoming challenges is kind of Lindsey Richter's thing. But on a warm 4th of July evening, Lindsey was faced with a challenge she didn't know how to cope with -  her best friend, a blue nosed pit bull rescue named Gracie, had vanished sometime during a fireworks show. What followed was an epic weeklong journey in the Wyoming wilderness, tens of thousands of would-be rescuers via social media, and an entire mountain community hell-bent on finding Gracie.

This is a story of hardship, the agonizing loss of a cherished friend, and the power of the community and oneself to beat the incredible odds in finding what matters most. 

"Lindsey has always been an inspiration to me on and off the bike," recalls podcast host Ash Bocast. "There were a million stories to share which exemplify how empowering and influential Lindsey is on the women's cycling community...but none did justice to her personal story...her unwavering courage and determination, the way telling Gracie's story did."
