Hi there, I’m Alissa, founder of Exploring Wild. Since becoming obsessed with bike travel I’ve pedaled over 19,000 loaded miles, touching wheels to 16 countries and 6 continents. More than 10,000 of those miles – including my first few big rides – have been solo, though these days I often enjoy the company of my husband or friends.
I began with road touring and transitioned to bikepacking, but still do a little of everything. I dabble in bikepack racing, drool over long international trips, and always enjoy a local overnighter with friends. I don’t always know what I’m doing – I just figure it out as I go! My other favorite ways of exploring are adventure travel and long-distance hiking. You can read more about me here.
In addition to writing about bikepacking here on my own website, I love participating in the wider bikepacking community. You’ll also find my writing and interviews on other sites, including:
