The American Southwest might not have great food, but it does have some of the most spectacular nature in the world to cycle through.
Photographer Paul Jeurissen and his wife Grace first cycled there in 1991. Since then they keep returning to experience the vast desert landscapes to be found in places like Utah, Arizona, New Mexico and western Colorado.
Grace tells about their American Southwest cycling experiences – especially in the state of Utah – in this week’s 10 Questions.
