Once membership and WI business is done, we’ll then hear from Rachel on her epic journey across the USA on her bike.
“On 17th May 2016, after giving up my job, I found myself on a flight to Boston, USA to meet 8 strangers. All we had in common was a dream to cycle across the USA via Canada.
5,000 miles of stunning scenery, 91 days of carrying all my belongings on the bike including my tent. Without a support vehicle, we had to be ready to resolve issues as they arose…and there were many!”
During her talk, she’ll focus on how she got involved (it was a bad day at
work which made her make a decision about what she really wanted to do), what happened on the adventure (a few tensions along the way), the incredibly generous Americans she met and the lessons she learned.
It promises to be a funny and ultimately inspiring talk about how to make your dreams a reality. Perfect to kick-start your 2019!
