Joyride036: Meet designer, entrepreneur, stylish bike commuter, and co-founder of Po Campo bags, Maria Boustead

Joyriders, Meet Maria!

An industrial designer and daily bike commuter since college, Maria wanted to make a product for women who were biking for transportation. She envisioned a better way to carry things on the bike that was both functional and stylish without hiding the fact that these were, in fact, bike bags.

Her first Interbike told her that guys were designing products for themselves, and ever since, she’s been strongly committed to the idea of equipping women with the gear that they need to integrate biking into their lifestyle and continue to improve the product in service to that mission.

Topics discussed on the show:
Ortlieb Panniers not super attractive
University of Illinois
Century training (sure beats a marathon!)
bike tour of Germany
touring the vineyards of Burgundy, France
calm city riding
New for 2018:

15% off discount code: Joyride (valid through May) Discount codes ARE case sensitive.

League of American Bicyclist’s National Bike Summit (March 5-7)

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 iTunesStitcher, 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.

Also, 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.

Never forget, “Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.”

Keep moving forward and until next time I hope you enjoy the ride.

Forever Forward!
