Cafe Ride: Olympic soigneur Rachel Voyles

By Reese Ruland

Published

We chat with Rachel Voyles a licensed massage therapist at Colorado Movement Therapy. She has a B.S. in Exercise and Sports Science, nine years of bodywork experience, and six years working as a soigneur and movement specialist within the professional cycling circuit. She recently joined Team USA for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. We are going to chat with Rachel about stress management, stress in the body, self-care (and how HARD it is), massage and how touch relieves stress, bikes, traveling, and the act of listening — to your body, to your environment, and the people around you. Most importantly, we are going to talk about how damn resilient your entire body is meant to be with the right resources, support, nutrition and sleep. Especially sleep. We'll probably talk about sleep a lot.

The Café Ride is an Instagram Live conversation series dedicated to telling the stories of amazing women, building community, and educating and inspiring fellow cyclists. This conversation series features women from various aspects of the cycling community. You’ll meet and hear stories from women who are recreational athletes, product developers, nutrition experts, or professional cyclists. The goal is to inspire, educate, and connect women from all over the world.
