Leah Goldstein

In this episode of the Bike Tour Adventures Podcast, I have a chance to speak with Leah Goldstein as she shares her journey with the listeners. From world kickboxing champion to working as an Israeli Special Forces Instructor, Leah has also been a national level duathlete, professional bike races and motivational speaker. As a 3 time Race Across America participant, Leah this year finished first overall in what can safely be described as one of the toughest bike races in the world.

Cheers . Keep on pedalling.

Traveller. Cyclist. Expat. Over 15 years experience living abroad in six different countries. I've travelled to over 40+ countries and met countless travellers, cyclists, and other expats. As a passionate cyclist I've had opportunities to bike tour in some truly amazing places. While definitely not an expert at bike touring, I'm passionate about sharing bike touring stories and helping others learn hacks, tricks, and techniques to improve their touring experience. I look forward to you joining me on this journey of learning about and becoming a better bike tourist.
