Sarah Swallow’s world to bikexploring opened up when she was given her first Delorme Atlas of the state of Ohio. She immediately dived into exploring places that interested her by making her own routes with a paper map, transfering it onto the web, and a gps device. Since Sarah started bikexplorering over 6-years ago, she has made routes throughout the country featured on Bikepacking.com. In 2015, Sarah and her partner became the first bicyclists to pioneer the 5,000 mile dirt road Trans America Trail which was traditionally ridden by Dual Sport Motorcyles. Sarah’s passion for bikexploring stems from the desire to learn, see, and experience something new. This passion fules Sarah’s motivation to spend nine-months out of the year exploring by bike all over the world.
