Mary Ann Thomas is a queer brown daughter of Indian immigrants. She’s Jersey born-and-raised and started biking as a way to escape the suburbs; she continues to access the self-reflection and meditative qualities that biking brings. Her long bike tours have taken her across North America, from San Diego to Montreal, and India, from the Himalayas to the tip of the India. She’s a writer and you can find her work at On She Goes and She Explores regularly.
