Lee Craigie: Yo-Yoing The Colorado Trail.
Lee Craigie has raced XV Mountain Bike for Scotland in the 2014 Commonwealth Games and for GB in World and European Championships. She went offroad on a Fatbike from Geneva to Nice! Lee holds the Women’s record for the Highland Trail 550 at under 4 days.
Lee is the Active Nation Commissioner for Scotland; working with the Scottish Government to encourage and enable a happier, healthier nation. She has re-engaged countless young people who have been excluded from school through Cycletherapy – a mountain bike project in Scotland.
Lee is Co-Director of The Adventure Syndicate, a not-for-profit organisation who use the inspiring stories of women adventuring by bike to encourage our audience to push their perceived limitations.
This year, Lee rode the Colorado Trail (CT), one of the premier long-distance trails in the USA, lauded by hikers, backpackers, mountain bikers and horse riders from around the world. The CT comprises 567 miles of trail between Denver and Durango and passes through some of the most spectacular scenery in the Colorado Rockies, and will talk about this at Dundee.
