In fact, didn’t even own one until her 20s—which is not the typical track for a former pro cyclist who competed in five World Championships. But then again, this is a microcosm of Lauren’s life, indicative of how the road has unfolded before her...even if it wasn’t planned. She is a Mississippi native, retired now from professional cycling,…
