Allie has been paddling a TRAK since 2011. Her first multi-day trip was a 16 day circumnavigation of Panama’s largest island, Isla Coiba, also known as the Galapagos of Panama. Her most memorable experience was launching into surf with a 6-foot crocodile at her bow. Allie spends her summers guiding and instructing on the Canadian west coast and heads to warmer climates during the Canadian winters. She has recently completed a solo cycle tour of the west coast of the United States and has since found another favourite mode of travel in cycle touring. For Allie, life unleashed means to carry herself with joy as she plays and travels the earth, creating meaningful moments with others, and to make sure that every choice she makes is coming from her own truth - “is this what I truly want right now?”. Meet this TRAK ambassador and see how you can live unleashed too!
