Joyriders, Meet Molly & Jocelyn!

Ah, you blurry ass iPhone!

On this LONG AWAITED season finale, we hang out at StreamPDX with bike adventure organizers and general badasses Molly Sugar of Friends on Bikes and Jocelyn Gaudi Quarrell of Komorebi Cycling. Molly and Jocelyn are two of the six gals who are heading up WTF Bikexplorers.

I am so excited to share this chat with you. On this episode we hang out at StreamPDX – a cute n cozy little Airstream turned recording studio – and talk about all the good stuff – including WTF bikeplorers, favorite stretches of road, cat holes, camping jitters, and more.

Big thanks to Molly Sugar and Jocelyn Quarrel for hanging out, and thanks to all the WTF Bikexplorers – including Whitney, Sarah, Mary, and Nam – for all the work they’re doing to get folks on bikes out into the wild.
I had the pleasure of going to the third and final bike adventure workshop that Jocelyn and Molly coordinated with Cup & Bar here in Portland. I got to hang out, have a beer with pals, do some learnin’, and hear some great stories from voices you already know – such as friend of the show Mollie Futterman from launch week! She told us about a recent bike packing trip to Costa Rica – and some others who I hope to introduce you to soon!
Oh, all you Molly Sugar fans out there – check her out on PLP Talks.

East Bay WomenBike Book Club: 2nd Thursdays (Oakland, CA)

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.

Ratings and reviews help with that (pssst, I read your 5-star reviews on the show!!) 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!
