I am Paula Regener, age 28, living in Glasgow, Scotland, and originally from Germany. I am a competitive triathlete and cyclist with a particular love of light-weight cycle touring and racing. I wanted to see how fast I can cycle around the world (well, 18000 miles from East to West of some bits of the world) to beat the current record of 144 days. Unfortunately before I set off I broke my ankle on a training ride. I am now concentrating on shorter bikepacking events such as the 2500km long TransAtlanticWay Race in Ireland that I finished in 7.5 days, placing 3rd overall and first women. Hit me up if you have some race ideas for me this summer.
