The Toughest Woman On Two Wheels

Postby Kev on Sun 3/May/15 11:53am

An enjoyable read from Outdoor magazine about endurance cyclist Juliana Buhring who left a notorious cult, wrote a bestseller, and then rode her bike around the world.

That’s a familiar theme among ultradistance cyclists. Many have something inside that allows them to ride for months alone with their thoughts, or that makes solitude preferable. Buhring, who spent her childhood trying to escape from the people closest to her, fit right in.

“It’s like I quit one cult,” she says, “and joined another.”

Wow - What an incredible person! She has packed a large range of experiences into a very short time so far.

500 miles in 36 hours, on the last day of a no-support race in which she won in 21 days, only 3.4 days behind the male winner. The next woman was 16 days behind. Obviously cults are good for you.
