Joyriders, Meet Marley!

Friends, I’m so stoked to introduce you to Marley Blonsky.  I absolutely love her unapologetic refusal to make biking in a bigger body about weight loss. GOOD STUFF. I’m not blowing smoke when I say that the content Marley makes just by living her life is stuff I wish I had seen 10 years ago! Hashtag inspiring.

First, friends, Marley and I were supposed to record at StreamPDX this weekend, but there was change of plans. It didn’t work out as we had hoped, this particular story below is one that I love and reference in the beginning of the show. I learned about it on this guy’s podcast, Secular Buddhism.

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!
