Hot Looks for Cool Cy­cling

the Trans Amer­ica race, Shelawa plans to ride across the United States fully self-sup­ported, try­ing to av­er­age around 220km a day to meet her 30-day goal. Why? “Be­cause I want to truly test my­self and find out where my lim­its are.”

With plans in place to con­quer cy­cling across three dif­fer­ent coun­tries be­fore her 32nd birth­day, her long term goals of rid­ing around the world in a year and touch­ing all of the oceans by bike just seem to make sense. And while your def­i­ni­tion of ad­ven­ture and Shelawa’s may dif­fer, we could all ben­e­fit from her ap­proach to cy­cle tour­ing: don’t worry about the des­ti­na­tion, just en­joy the ride!

I want to truly test my­self and find out where my lim­its are.
