In January of 2016 I walked away from the professional sport of cycling. I didn’t retire, I quit. But for all the right reasons, for the pursuit of love and happiness. Join me as I leave behind a career of blood, sweat, and gears and welcome in a future of embrace.


I was a professional cyclist for 11 years. I competed on 5 continents and helped my teams to numerous victories. However, results do not define my career. My loyalty to clean and fair play always took precedent. Receiving the 2014 Jack Kelly Fair Play Award from the US Olympic committee marked the pinnacle of my cycling career. The award recognizes my relentless pursuit to remain compassionate in a sport which is typically characterized by fierce competition.

I am using my expertise in cycling to engage in hosting community experiences and helping others build healthy relationships with the bike. On top of non-profit and community outreach I am active in promoting the sport through live commentating and public speaking, brand influencer roles, and content production.



I rebuilt the first bike I ever owned and Explored what cycling means to Me after retiring as a pro cyclist.

Cyclists and Chefs join together to fuel their passions in the Appetite Ride.

A close friend of mine once told me, “the only thing we have to do in life is die, everything else is a choice.” Staying in cycling and chasing that feeling of hope was a conscious decision. As hard and masochistic as this sport can be the highs are unlike any other experience I have had, yet so are the lows.
It was ultimately the tumultuous path of a pro cyclist that left me craving a sense of what was beyond the handlebars.

I am involved in several non-profit organizations.  Find out more about how I am involved below.

non-profit work

King Ridge Foundation & Levi's GranFondo

In 2016 Levi's Gran Fondo launched the King's Ridge Foundation, supporting at risk youth across the country. I have supporting Levi's Gran Fondo since it's inaugural year in 2009 based on it's core values to put money back into it's local community. Now it has taken that same philosophy and is working to bring the same commitment into a neighborhood near you. Learn more about the King's Ridge Foundation here.

National Interscholastic Cycling Association

In 2001 a group of kids got together from various high schools and we raced each other on our mountain bikes. Something we had all done in various races with a few of each other at a time, but never all at once. There we were, a scene that easily could resemble the "Sandlot" of cycling, writing history. We were the first group of high schoolers to form the NorCal High School League. Since then NICA has formed as the National branch of high school cycling leagues across the country. 

Over 10,000 kids on bikes in almost 20 states, NICA's goal is to be coast to coast by 2020. I was there in 2001 as one of those kids and I'm here to day to help put more kids on bikes in this country. Every kid deserves the freedom and sense of empowerment that comes from two wheels.

Association of North American Professional Road Cyclists

Towards the end of my professional cycling career I recognized there was a lack of representation in our sport. Together, along with a core group of motivated individuals, we formed the Association of North American Pro Road Cyclists (ANAPRC). In November 2014 we became the first new organization accepted into the CPA, the current professional cycling association, in 12 years.

October 28, 2016

Written by: Lucas Euser

I never knew I was going to be a professional cyclist. It was never a dream or something I told my friends. Until, one day, it happened. I wasn’t chasing victories or glory or fame, I was chasing a feeling.

What's Old is New Again: A Ride Down Memory Lane

August 23, 2017

Writen By: Lucas Euser

By definition, energy can neither be created nor destroyed but rather, it transforms from one form to another. So when we take to sport as human beings we produce energy to transform it from the physical into motion. My whole life I spent transforming my energy into the bicycle. The discovery of this simple, human powered machine changed my life. From the few pedal strokes it took to get around the block, further out of the neighborhood than I had been before, I was hooked on that feeling of freedom.

You Got This! Overcome the 4 Biggest Cycling Fears.

February 6, 2018


I think in the past, I wasn’t really facing the fear—I was just ignoring it and trying to convince myself that nothing was wrong. I know the consequences of turning off that fear mechanism. I’ve come to terms with my fear, and I respect it. I don’t go nearly as fast downhill anymore. I ride two or three days a week, and I love it. It’s still a way to exercise and clear my head. But it’s not my ultimate focus.

Afternoon light floods the second floor of Taylor Phinney's airy condo, bathing the unfinished canvases leaning against the wall and the paint cans with colors frozen in mid-drip. Blocks of seafoam green, cobalt blue, periwinkle and rust interrupt white space punctuated by word strings -- scientific terms, free-form thoughts -- written in neat block letters. In the upper right-hand corner of one canvas are the bold-faced words Act II...
