On this episode of The Joyride, I chat with writer, maker, and creatrix Sarai Snyder.
Sarai is a general badass and co-Founder of CycloFemme, a global movement to empower the girl and ignite the woman, now its 6th year.
“CycloFemme is a Global Celebration of Women created TO HONOR THE PAST from the shoulders of those who stood before us, for the freedom to choose and the chance to wear pants. TO CELEBRATE THE PRESENT with strength and courage, voices raised, moving together. TO EMPOWER THE FUTURE of women everywhere, the backbone of positive social change.”
CycloFemme 2017 ride list here! or Lead the way by creating a ride!
This year CycloFemme is partnering with World Bicycle Relief to empower school girls in Kenya with bicycles!
(Psst. This is the best cause, you gyns. And you don’t have to ride to donate!)
On this episode we’ll talk about the origins of CycloFemme, Sarai’s first bike packing trip, tips for how you can get more comfortable in the great outdoors, why she rides, and of course, bike snacks.
Here are links to stuff discussed in this episode in no particular order:
- CycloFemme, duh
- World Bicycle Relief
- San Juan Mountains
- Bikepacking the Colorado Trail
- Skratch Labs
This was rad. Big thanks to Sarai for hanging out, giving us a glimpse into the making of CycloFemme, and sharing the bike love with us!
Friends, you know I believe in the transformative power of the bike, in our personal lives, our communities, and the world at large. I would be super grateful if you’d leave a rating or review in iTunes, Stitcher, or via whatever method you listen. It helps more gals find the show, and I believe the more stories we share, the more women who ride, we make this world – both our internal and external worlds – better with every revolution.
Remember: I read 5-star reviews out on the show because I love you.
Ratings and reviews help with that, but nothing is better than a personal referral, it’d be rad if you would share the show with even just one woman who you think might dig it.
Remember, life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.
Keep moving forward and until next time I hope you enjoy the ride.
