Lois Pryce AKA Lois on the Loose is one of 5 women featured by National Geographic for International Women's Day. She's moved up to a TTR250 but still soloing on her bike off the beaten path.

Read her book and if it was a true account she isn't a very good rider. Book wasn't very good either, IMHO!!!!

Some years ago I had a brief email exchange with Lois. She's a very nice gal. Glad to see she's still doing 2 wheel adventures. Can't comment on the book as I haven't read it. That said, hope she's doing well.

It's her fault I've got a Serow! :-D

I read Lois on the Loose, then put an impulse bid on a bike on ebay, and won.

MeToo (heh). Bought mine off a gal who bought it new after reading Pryce's book. I read it as well and found it pretty engaging. The lack of macho bravado was refreshing; just a normal person deciding to go on an adventure (those soul-killing office jobs can do that).
