Lael Wilcox On Biking All The Major Roads in Alaska

The idea of “adventure” is often tied to the act of jumping on a plane and heading to some exotic destination like the Himalayas, the Alps, or the Caribbean. Ultra-distance cyclist Lael Wilcox doesn’t see it that way. Her first adventure ride started from her own garage in Alaska, and her bike was the vessel for exploring. Over time, she gradually pushed her limits on her bike and won notable events like the Trans Am Bike Race in 2016. Regardless, she kept coming home to ride more and eventually concocted the idea to ride all the major roads in Alaska. In Lael Rides Alaska, we follow along with her on this quest, and the best part is she wants you to join the ride. If there’s anything Wilcox wants you to take away from this video, it is the ability to pursue your own adventures—even in her home state!

Such an endurance! Go Lael! You are my inspiration, I wish I could do such biking in my place as well.
