Crazy Cycling Chick
- About the Author
“The tears ran, hot and salty, down the sides of my face into my ears ... I hurt everywhere ... and my tire was flat. Again. I didn't know if I was going to make it. I just wanted to curl into a ball and give up ... What was I doing, racing across America?"
Moving from Singapore to California was a breath of fresh air for Angie. With the curiosity and spunk of an animal let loose in the wild, she began to explore her surroundings on her bicycle. The idea struck her: Why not cycle across America? And why not film a documentary to chronicle the adventure?
She would eventually complete the Northwestern-central route in under 40 days. 4,000 miles at a pace of 100 miles a day. Angie's story of cycling across the third-largest continent in the world is a story of peaks and troughs (both literal and metaphorical), overcoming physical, mental and emotional obstacles, and busting old beliefs. It is also a celebration of friendships forged with the people she met on her journey.
Angie's account of her crazy dream, from conception to actualization, will resonate with anyone who has ever dreamed big.
