Overcoming Fear... Through Adventure

oliviaandmiyabicycle.jpg

I celebrate women and their bicycles. In a world where we've forgotten how to play, how to live inside our physical bodies, and how to value our vulnerability as well as our strength, bicycles can be our teachers.

In my early twenties, solo travel was my initiation into womanhood. Between the ages of twenty and twenty-five, I volunteered on organic farms in Chile, backpacked through parts of Central America, and rode my bicycle alone across the United States. The most common question was always, "You're out here alone?" Followed by, "Aren't you afraid?"

The "Me Too" movement on social media has brought the charged topic of women's vulnerability into the spotlight. Women are being invited to tell each other, and everyone, their personal stories of struggling with boundaries, expectations, weakness, and courage. The more we understand harassment and how we can overcome it, the more women will feel empowered to strike out on their own. 

It's time for adventure...
