Biographical and Professional Information

At age 30, Alice Teisan was an avid cyclist with a big dream: to ride her bicycle on every continent. But that summer, as she was preparing for a cross-country cycling trip, she was struck with a life-altering illness. In a flash, it seemed, her health, her career ambitions, her financial situation, and her plans for the future—not to mention her big dream—were all shattered. Was life still worth living when everything she once held dear was stripped away? ''Riding on Faith'' is the story of how God took Alice’s dream and turned it upside down, replacing it with an even bigger dream inside her heart. Teisan is the founder and executive director of ''His Wheels International'', a ministry that has distributed more than 1,500 bikes and trikes to people affiliated with 88 countries on six continents. She is an inspiration speaker who has been a guest on several national radio shows, including ''Chris Fabry Live'' and ''First Person with Wayne Shepherd''.
