Hi. I’m Gloria.

gloria liu freelance writerI’m a freelance journalist based in Boulder, Colorado. I’m also an editor-at-large for BICYCLING and Runner’s World.

My writing has also appeared on Outside, Women’s Health, The Red Bulletin, Condé Nast Traveler, Lonely Planet, 5280, Rodale’s Organic Life, BIKE, BikeRadar, Slowtwitch, and other publications. I write about a wide range of topics, from grief and love, to the psychology behind why we love getting big air, to the intersection of #MeToo and cycling, to the celebration of the wonderful outliers in our communities.

As the former features editor at BICYCLING (2016 to 2018), I wrote and edited stories of all kinds: long-form narratives, big packages, interviews, and service pages. I also planned the print lineup each month. As our gear editor from 2014 to 2016, I edited our 2014, 2015, and 2016 Buyer’s Guides. Before BICYCLING, I was the content editor at TrainingPeaks.com, an endurance sports training platform, for 2.5 years. At TrainingPeaks, I executed successful digital marketing campaigns using content marketing, SEO, analytics, PR, social media, and copywriting.

In a past life, I worked in financial services, which gave me a strong analytical and professional background. I also learned to manage a lot of projects under tight deadlines.

In between all these rather different career paths, I’ve traveled. I worked at a couple of ski resorts in New Zealand and Colorado, became a certified scuba divemaster in Honduras, and spent a summer in the French Alps.
