Cyclocross, Smoothies & a Sweepstakes

Cindy | January 14, 2015

Austin_cyclocross_buzzThe “Berries” – the nickname given to the members of our cycling team—participated in the National Cyclocross Championships last weekend in Austin, TX, and Logan Owen fought hard to win the under-23 championship.  Logan wasn’t the only winner, though, as our California Giant “road crew” was out in force, providing a whole lotta winners with samples of smoothies featuring fresh strawberries and blueberries, Natural Delights Medjool dates, and Noosa Yoghurt (see below for the most popular combinations from the weekend).


Lots of riders and attendees were #poweredbyberries throughout the weekend—even with much colder than average temperatures and wet stuff falling from the sky a good portion of the time.  We had a blast meeting so many folks who are passionate about cycling and fresh berries. The two go hand-in-hand perfectly.

Congratulations to the champions, placers, our team, and all the other participants who braved the wintry weather and resulting mud puddles.  We can’t wait for the next cycling event and will keep you posted on where we’ll be so you can come “get your smoothie on,” too!

A lot of people ask about "the person behind the posts" on The Buzz. Who is THAT knowledgeable about all things berry-related?
