Sarah Swallow (she/her) is a professional adventure cyclist, event organizer, writer and route developer. She uses her experiences exploring by bike to inspire and encourage others to use the bicycle as a tool to learn more about themselves and the world around them. After spending 10-years working in bike shops and 5-years owning her own shop, she set out to ride across the U.S. following dirt roads to explore the possibilities the bicycle could offer. She hasn’t stopped since. Sarah is an adventure ambassador for Specialized Bicycles and Ride with GPS, a contributor to, and an occasional writer for Lonely Planet, Adventure Cyclist, and Adventure Journal. Her latest project was organizing the Ruta Del Jefe Challenge, which was a 125-mile adventure race created to raise awareness of the environmental, political, and humanitarian threats occurring in the borderlands.
