This is a retelling of who gets to adventure through the town square and out into America on the vulnerable, and venerable, bicycle.

In Episode Four, we hear from women whose perspectives on athleticism and privilege have been shaped by their backgrounds, their bodies, and their love of the outdoors. Each of them lives in a body that traditionally isn’t associated with adventure. Yet here they are, riding across states and countries, and working to ensure they’re not the last.

Their stories reveal the absurdity of widely held misconceptions about who rides and why they want to. This episode features Stephanie Puello, Marley Blonsky, and Kailey Kornhauser.
