Roam Your Soul is all about amazing women doing amazing things that inspire other women around the globe. Let’s inspire and motivate each other. Support each other and learn from each other.
Recently, the Roam Your Soul staff teamed up with Against the Grind, a two-girl bicycling team that have endeavored to cross the country to create a documentary about amazing, every day women, doing amazing things. They are currently parked in Savannah, Georgia before they had out on their next journey and have just finished their first video about girls and bikes (one of my personal passions).

Bicycling has a funny way of empowering women. I have been a part of several women’s mountain biking clinics as both participant and instructor and it’s amazing to see how empowered and successful women feel after finishing a women’s clinic. I spoke to two women this weekend from IdeRide and Kingdom Trails who have created women’s clinics for MTB and have had over 90 women sign up for the workshop. Women like to be challenged. We like to feel empowered. We like to be adventurous.
Check out M2M – an organization that utilizes bicycling to bring awareness to the lack of liberties to women in countries around the world. Shannon, the founder of M2M, is currently riding her bike through Afghanistan (which is a prohibited activity for women in that country) to bring awareness to the country and the rest of the world.
And finally, look at yourself. We are all amazingly capable and empowered women. We do amazing things every day. It’s time to take that to a global community level and start supporting and empowering each other across the world.
Against the Grind and Roam Your Soul will be working together to create a unique Adventure and Reflection Task for the Roam Your Soul workshop that starts in December, 2011. Get ready to feel empowered. Get ready to inspire others with your story.
