Lael Wilcox – Anchorage, Alaska
I ride to get places. I travel on the bike so that I can live outside and explore. I race because sometimes I win. I like to mix it up. I like so many things about pedaling. It’s active and quiet and unpredictable. You get to see and feel a lot. I’m inspired because I haven’t been everywhere and I want to go everywhere and a lot of places I want to revisit. I really started riding bikes when I was 20 to get to and from work. Ten years later I’ve traveled over 100,000 miles on my bike in thirty countries. I still feel like I’m just getting started. I want to keep traveling on the bike for as long as I’m excited about it. I’ve been going for eight years and it only gets better every year.
