Black cyclist Ayesha McGowan is making history--as the first African-American female professional cyclist.

A bike can take you a long way quickly. As well taking you to new places and spaces.

It's a journey cyclist Ayesha McGowan is experiencing both professionally -- and emotionally.

When McGowan chats to CNN Sport she's on a high from finishing the first leg of an intense training season in Tuscany for the Liv Racing WorldTeam, with her membership as a satellite rider for the 11-person roster announced in February 2021.
