Presented by The Adventure Syndicate, Ayesha McGowan, a Syndicateer from the Bay Area of California, chats to Jools Walker aka Vélo-City-Girl about her ambition to become the first female African-American professional cyclist.
“Representation is important,” says Ayesha. “If I’d seen another black person in cycling when I was a kid, maybe I would have been inspired to get into it sooner.” She has spent the last five years working her way up the ranks of the US racing scene, as well as tirelessly advocating for minorities in cycling, and encouraging more people to get out their bikes via projects like her ‘Do Better Together’ virtual ride series.
A vivacious and engaging speaker, Ayesha wants to bring her message to as many people as possible, encouraging them not only to pursue their own cycling ambitions, but also to support others in working towards theirs.
