About Nancy Brook, “The Cycling Chick”
Nancy Brook is “The Cycling Chick.” She’s author of Cycling, Wine, and Men: A Midlife Tour de France, a book that’s been called the next Eat, Pray, Love. She is an award-winning speaker, author, show host and MBA. She combines 25-years business experience with lessons learned from her cycling adventures to inspire people to get on their lives and ride! She teaches the value of perseverance, teamwork and leadership.
While this is Nancy’s first book, she has written hundreds of magazine and newspaper articles through the years. In her twenties, she undertook a three-year “writing internship” by starting a newspaper. Possessing a lot of passion but limited business acumen, she packed up her family, moved to Montana, and started a monthly publication with her then husband. The newspaper eventually reached a circulation of 40,000 and Nancy was recognized by the Small Business Administration as Media Advocate of the Year.
Another one of her passions is public speaking. Nancy is an award-winning speaker and thirteen-year member of Toastmasters International. She has won the District Table Topics contest twice and was a regional finalist of the International Speech contest. She has achieved the designation of Advanced Communicator-Gold and currently serves as Area Governor. She recently took her speaking talents to the Women’s Information Network as show host for the “Love Your Path Show.”
Nancy holds an MBA from the University of Montana and has more than twenty-five years experience in marketing and currently works as a Vice President of Marketing for a bank. Her favorite activities are jogging, biking, and traveling around the world. She lives in Billings, Montana, with her two hairy herding dogs.
