This is episode # 7 of the Joyride – a celebration of women who ride bikes! Each week I publish a new conversation with a different woman who rides a bike in some form or fashion.
This week on the Joyride I’m joined by adventurer, cyclist and doula Em Flynn, who is the author of “This is Not a Guide Book” – we’re going to talk about touring Iceland, breaking down in Bellingham, and doing things your own damn way.
