Alissa loves wide open spaces, human-powered adventure, and getting in just a bit over her head (in a good way). She first discovered bicycle travel through the stories of others, fell in love, and has since pedaled thousands of miles in all kinds of cool places. Now she writes to encourage others the way others encouraged her. When not pedaling she scratches a similar itch through endurance trail running and long-distance hiking.
