Ayesha is a professional road cyclist, an advocate, and a creator – of music, of video and photography; she’s also a traveler, and most importantly, a granddaughter – a daughter – a wife. It has been said that Ayesha McGowan’s secret sauce is her mental toughness. “Cycling is a unifier. We all enjoy bikes.
