  1. I am also female cyclists, I love to see those interviews, I already watched 3 of them. The experience they share it was really awesome for me to keep my cycling. I am inspired again. Thanks for share!

    • Hi Jesica, that’s good to hear….keep pedaling…..Cheers Heike

  2. Wow. You guys are my inspirations. Thanks for sharing this.

  3. Aloha,

    i am a solo woman adventurer and you might be able to help me.

    i want to give away my 46cm 2011 Surly Long Haul Trucker to a FIRST TIME female cross-country rider!

    Once upon a time i bought a bicycle and rode from Chinook, WA to Rehoboth Beach, DE. Since then this bicycle has ridden through all 50 United States and clocked over 7,000 miles! Eight years, later i want to give someone else this amazing opportunity.
    In my dream of dreams this bicycle will travel the world, trek over 100,000 miles and have at least a dozen different riders. Truly a gift that keeps giving/going!

    i am looking for that star crossed cyclist that is ready to take on a new adventure and needs great gear to do it (giving away my bicycle with panniers).

    i am reaching out to other woman cyclers and blog people and other platforms to get the word out in hopes that the right woman will get in contact with me.

    If you know someone or have any ideas of how to reach that right candidate…i am all ears!

    Thanks for all your consideration 🙂

    • Rachel, thank you very much for your generosity!
      I hope the lady you are looking for is contacting you soon…..
      All the best for you and keep enjoying life!

      Cheers from the road…..Heike

    • Hello Rachel, I have a feeling this reply might be too late. But I am in the beginning stages of dreaming, planning and researching my FIRST bike trip down the Pacific Coast. I’m a wee 4’10 which means your old beauty would be
      (dare I say…) the perfect size. I wonder if you’ll get this message in time or AT ALL and maybe we can chat? I hope you’re well and riding strong 🙂

    • I am a Canadian looking for a long haul trucker.

      I am 5’4”

      Have you already found someone?
