Exploring Wild: Stories of Inspiration

Alissa Bell, a passionate bike tourist and founder of Bike Sleep Bike and Exploring Wild, shares her journey from a life-changing trip in Africa to building a community project that showcases personal bike travel stories from around the world.

Alissa Bell takes us on an inspiring adventure as she shares her transformational journey from the corporate grind to the liberating world of global bike touring.

Following the motivating stories of women adventurers, Alissa stepped out of her comfort zone, leading to remarkable experiences in East and West Africa, Southeast Asia, and South America. These experiences culminated in a newfound love for bike travel and a desire to share her stories with the world.

As the founder of Bike Sleep Bike, her online community project that brings together a diverse collection of personal bike travel stories, Alissa has logged over 20,000 miles cycling across the globe. Through the power of storytelling, she highlights the challenges and rewards of solo travel and overcoming fears. Her insights provide a powerful testament to the life-changing impact of travel and the vibrant spirit of the cycling community.

Catch up with Alissa on her website, Exploring Wild, and follow her adventures on Bike Sleep Bike and Facebook.
