In June 2014, Angeline Tan cycled 4,000 miles (6,437 km) across America in 39 days.
The idea came when Angie moved from Singapore to California with her husband. She began to explore her surroundings on her bicycle, and the idea struck her: Why not cycle across America?
Angie's account of her crazy dream, from inception to actualization, will resonate with anyone who has ever dreamed big. Laugh and cry with her on this journey of overcoming physical, mental and emotional obstacles, busting old beliefs, and making—and losing—new friends.
She also produced a full-length documentary which captures the challenges of the journey. Crazy Cycling Chick is not just Angie's story of cycling across the third-largest continent in the world, it is a tapestry of the hopes and fears of the people she met on her journey.
Angeline Tan is an adventurer, writer, filmmaker and motivational speaker with a special interest in inspiring change. She started writing at age five, having been greatly inspired by Enid Blyton. Crazy Cycling Chick is her first book. She is the creator of an independently produced documentary, Angie Across America, which covers the journey in this book. She lives in the San Francisco Bay area.
