Cycling Solo Across the USA is More Doable Than You Think
Check out the feature article I wrote for Matador Network, a popular online travel population I’ve contributed to over the years. The goal here was to spread my message of bike tour doability. If I can convince one new bicycle adventuress, I’m happy.
“One of my biggest lessons from the road is that this is more within reach than most people imagine. If an everyday gal like me with an everyday bike like mine can pedal her way across America, then anyone else with a moderate amount of fitness, wits, and guts can do it as well.”READ IT

According to data from the Adventure Cycling Association, about 75% of cyclists who ride the TransAm route identify as male. Of the females who tour by bicycle, the majority are coupled with male partners or with groups. Solo female riders are rare.”READ IT
