In only her second year of racing bikes, #Ayesha McGowan of Brooklyn took home the 2015 New York State Cat 3 road-race championship. The 28-year-old preschool music teacher is also the program director for the nonprofit InTandem, which uses tandem bikes to provide riding opportunities to people with disabilities. Here’s how she plans to make history—and how she shares her love of cycling along the way.
