    Party Pace with Laura Crawford (Episode 42)

    This week Kathryn and Kristi connect with cycling entrepreneur Laura Crawford. Laura is an advocate for bike tourism and believes that there is more to cycling than placing. Laura and her husband Russ created #supplelife, #partypace and the Path Less Pedaled community, which embraces the experience of cycling, no matter your pace.

    Laura is instrumental in the development and expansion of the bike tourism industry in rural areas by offering resources, accommodations and a safe space for the bike community. Laura shares her experience with traveling by bike over 15,000 miles across the US and New Zealand.

    Watch their YouTube channel: The Path Less Travel covers all things cycling and is a great resource for any cyclist.

Inspiring and real

I've enjoyed this podcast so far. The real conversations about the transition to motherhood, nature breaks and self-doubt have been affirming. It's nice to hear others talk about things I've never said out loud haha. Even if you're not a gravel rider you'll find this podcast inspiring.

Love!

This is such a great podcast! Admittedly, I don’t love gravel riding but I’m finding the pod is more about strong women in cycling and spreading that!
