Cycling the Pacific Coast Highway & the Baja Divide!
On the 4th September I will fly out to Vancouver.
On the 10th September 2018 - I will be cycling over 4,000km down the Pacific Coast Highway to San Diego, before crossing the border into Mexico to cycle the Baja Divide to Cabo San Lucas.
I will be sharing all of the planning and preparation as well as daily vlogging the cycling challenge!
I can't wait to share this experience with you!
