108: This Doctor’s Prescription is More Bikes with Lauren Cantwell, MD (Episode 108)

In this Episode

How does a busy ER doctor balance work and racing in the elite field? Lauren Cantwell doesn’t just enjoy cycling, she lives for it. Ironically, as an emergency room doctor, she gets into more accidents than you would think. This week, Kathryn and Kristi talk to Lauren about her lifestyle and love of the sport.

Working mostly overnight shifts in the ER, waking up early for those gravel rides is extremely challenging for Lauren…but she still crushes it on the course. Lauren shares some of the common injuries gravel cyclists face, what they mean, and how to do immediate triage.
