My 2018 TOUGH GIRL CHALLENGE
Cycling the Pacific Coast Highway & the Baja Divide!
On the 4th September I flew out to Vancouver. On the 10th September 2018 - I started the journey to cycle 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.
Thank you to the members of the Tough Girl Tribe for their fabulous questions!
