I think about things when I’m moving. I run, I ride bikes, and I do yoga.
Lael Wilcox has been traveling the world by bicycle for the past nine years and competes in ultra endurance races. In 2015, after 9 months of bikepacking through Eastern Europe, South Africa and the Middle East, she flew home to Anchorage, Alaska and rode to the start of the Tour Divide in Banff, Alberta where she set a new women’s record. In 2016 she won the Trans Am Bike Race, a self-supported road race across America. In March 2017, Lael established the fastest known time (FKT) on the Baja Divide.
Lael is also the co-developer of the Baja Divide, a 1700 mile bikepacking route from San Diego, CA, USA to San Jose del Cabo, BCS, MX. The “Lael’s Globe of Adventure” Women’s Scholarship is offered to a woman of any age who intends to ride most or all of the Baja Divide in the 2016-17 season. More details and a link to the application are found on the Baja Divide Scholarship page.
I plan to continue traveling by bike, racing self-supported events, and working to support my travels in 2017. Contact me with ideas and opportunities.
