Jess Cerra is a professional gravel racer hailing from Whitefish, Montana. When Cerra was growing up, her family didn’t have a lot of money and she couldn’t afford college on her own. She relied on community endowments and scholarships from her hometown to fund the majority of her education. Now she’s giving back to Whitefish through The Last Best Ride, a gravel race event that encourages community members to participate no matter their skill level. The Last Best Ride, from The Road West Traveled and Pinarello, highlights the beauty of Montana’s biking trails and how the event lifts up the community.
