Ride the Rockies is thrilled to announce its new ride director: Sabra Nagel, who brings with her 13 years of cycling event experience.
With a specialization in technical cycling event production that includes charitable, recreational, amateur and competitive cycling events, Nagel most recently served as ride director for the Denver Century Ride.
Nagel has directed over two dozen cycling events where she focused on technical operations, permitting, staffing, permissions, budget oversight and rider experience.
“Bicycling and organizing cycling events are my passions and I’m honored to have the opportunity to be a part of this great tradition,” says Nagel. “I understand the community that has been built around this event and passion riders have for it and look forward to doing my part to preserve it.”
Nagel originally from Glenwood, Iowa now resides in Littleton, Colorado and enjoys producing events, traveling and spending time with her horse.
“I’m looking forward to bringing my expertise in producing events that are safe, interesting, fun and memorable,” says Nagel. “I want everyone to feel that they are the most important person at the event whether they are a rider, crew, volunteer, vendor or sponsor.”
