WOW: Women on Wheels

“Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world.”
-Susan B. Anthony, 1896

People thought I was crazy when I started out on this journey as a young solo female because apparently the feminist movement is not quite as advanced as we would all like to believe. That being said, there are actually a whole lot of us out there today, pedaling across every continent on Earth while pioneering women’s rights by simply living our lives how we please. Though I personally have only met a few short term solo females (no world tourers), there is a wonderful website, Women on Wheels (started by Loretta Henderson – a well traveled solo female cyclist herself), where us solo female tourers have been able to see that we aren’t alone in our endeavors.

Check it out!

  1. Amazing site – I’ll have to keep it in mind to look through more; it’s really inspiring. Your blog has really encouraged me to consider cycling for my next big trip. I did some shorter bouts renting a cycle a few weeks ago in the Baltics and I would really love to go back there and do a proper tour. And then there’s always my beloved Finland. 🙂

    By the way, I also wanted to let you know I nominated you for some chain blog awards/memes/things, if you feel so inclined to participate! http://wentlooking.com/2014/09/10/well-tell-all-about-sunrise-and-about-sunset/ But either way, I wanted to let you know that your blog numbers among my favorites!
