Lucy Flanagan, a 17-year-old senior at New Trier, was a hiker who worked at an indoor cycling studio but didn’t really ride outside before deciding to do her first ever bike tour through Overland: a coast-to-coast trip going 3,248 miles from Savannah, Georgia to LA. Now she loves biking and is planning to ride through the Canadian Rockies this summer!
Amy Andrews has been riding all sorts of bikes for 35 years, but her greatest love is mountain biking. In addition to enjoying mountain and fat bike riding in all seasons, she’s worked to create and protect trail systems that everyone can enjoy. We chatted with her about how people can join her in this super fun and engaging kind of riding.
