Escape – Lee Craigie’s inner journey along the Caledonia Way
Lee is co founder and co director of The Adventure Syndicate; a visionary group of bike riders who share the desire to encourage more women and girls to challenge what they think they are capable of.
Women and girls can be discouraged from participating in sport for any number of social and psychological reasons but The Adventure Syndicate believes that independent, adventurous travel may succeed where more traditional routes have failed.
Although many women and girls are not attracted by the more overtly competitive elements of cycling, the personal and social benefits of riding for adventure or exploration can ensure a similar beneficial outcome. In addition, the possibilities for empowerment through the planning and execution of an adventurous bike ride can have untold benefits on participants’ self-esteem and confidence.
