Featured 2013 Cyclist
Liane Lau : 2012 TransAmerica CYCLIST
Bike: Specialized Ruby Elite
My name is Liane (pronounced lee-ann) Lau (pronounced Lao).
Groundhog chasing, pumpkin eating individual who should be on the Amazing Race. For an outdoorsy, adventure-seeker, it can be tough to run away from the sun, but also don't mind sitting back with a good, used, physical book that's cheaper than an eBook, and always in the mood for an upbeat, urban, dance flick or PG-13 underdog movie. I adore Adele. I can listen to her on endless repeat.
Despite the fact, I own many gadgets; I don’t really know how to use an oven or a dryer very well. Liane + microwaves are not friends… or really cooking for that matter. Diet is mostly raw and vegetarian… I say mostly veg because sometimes I lack protein and eat salmon as the quick fix. When left to my own means I eat raw. I am not opposed to hot cooked food as long as it is delivered or made for me.
Hometown: Brooklyn, New York
Current city: Philadelphia (until end of May)
Future city: San Francisco (as of August 1st)
How I get around: I have always wanted to own a cruiser with a basket! Or a P2 Cervelo for speed. Currently riding a Specialized Ruby Elite. She does not have a name yet but we've been together since 2010.
Favorite colors: orange and green
Most likely to eat: banana
Favorite cycling snacks: honey stinger energy chews
Friends describe me as: adventurous, organized, competitive and adaptable.
Superhero skills I would like to have: dream of food and it appears.

Active triathlon volunteer mentor with the Leukemia Society’s, Team in Training program.
I am excited to see the country by bike and I look forward to this journey. Thank you for your generosity and support in this adventure.
Dream big. Reach the finish line. Repeat.
