Presentation on Sunday, February 12th in Seattle

It’s been quite some time since my last post, and much has happened. Getting the chance to ride across the United States and Canada on a KLR, and to be a part of Women ADV Riders magazine were both wonderful. Being given the opportunity to teach at an all girl’s high school right after was an incredible way to wrap up the last year, is something that will fill me with happiness for a long time.

As I prepare to leave Seattle for the next leg of the journey (Oceania-Asia-Europe), I’ll be giving one more presentation in Seattle. Please join!

Please join us at Touratech on Sunday, February 12th for SheADV’s Brunch Series!

New: Women’s ADV Rider Magazine, Now Live!

It’s been a busy month for European rider El Gerai as she gets ready to launch a women’s adventure rider magazine- the first of its kind! Get inspired to explore our world by reading stories of intrepid women from all corners of the globe. Learn about Ola Trzaskowska as she travels Afghanistan on two wheels, or Christina Pefani’s accounts of single-track riding through The Republic of Congo (and a dozen other countries). Join us to discover the ins and outs of financing a motorcycle journey, tips on mechanics, health and well-being, gear reviews, and so much more!

“This magazine, just like women ADV riders all over the world, is in constant metamorphosis. The way we ride, travel, and tell stories changes every day, but with every day, we grow. We get better, stronger, and more daring. We go further; we push our limits, test our resilience, and get bolder. Now, as we release the first Women ADV Riders magazine, we say it’s time to get louder, too!”

Alcan to Ocean Icecap Expedition: Alone on the Kaskawulsh

The 3:30am night air bit into our exposed skin as we dismantled camp and prepared for the long ascent of a 15 mile day. Lynne would be dropped off at 5,500 feet, where the snow was more stable. Just the day before, Jim had punched through a very well-hidden crevasse while we traveled unroped, incredibly lucky it hadn’t been wider. To avoid the hazards of that section, and to meet Lynne before nightfall, we caught a few hours sleep before waking up for the big push.
