In 2009, Loretta Henderson set off to cycle the world. During her five-year solo cycling tour, she biked through 41 countries on five continents.
She is the creator of the popular Women on Wheels Wall, a rapidly-growing online bicycle touring community.
Loretta's most recent endeavour is the Big Women on Wheels book. This inspiring resource for women was created in collaboration with 245 solo female cyclists.
Here's what people are saying about the book:
Inspiration a plenty in the Big WOW Book of Solo Female Cyclists…It’s not often that a book about bicycle touring comes across less of a manual and more of a rollicking, inspiring tale woven around the stories of 100 cycling superheroes from 30+ countries, but that’s exactly what Loretta Henderson’s Big Women On Wheels Book has managed to achieve. —Friedel Grant, Travelling Two
I received such a beautiful, and thankful, email from a young woman who cycled solo on the West Coast of the USA. An American, born in Amdo Tibet, she found me in WOW – among hundreds of other lady cyclists. Yes, thousands of us cycle solo, and you can read all about us in Loretta Henderson’s wonderful eBook. —Eleanor Moseman, round-the-world cyclist, photographer
