Friendship, Biking, and Defying Expectations

Welcome to Episode 5 of Beyond the Ceiling! We're excited to share stories about incredible women who are making the world a better place. Please support our bi-weekly series by subscribing on iTunes (even if you listen elsewhere), following us on Soundcloud, subscribing to our email list, and telling your friends about us!

Our guests this week are Melissa and Claire, two bike riders who are on the journey of a lifetime--making their way from Wisconsin, up through Canada, down the East Coast, and then back to Wisconsin. (We're still astounded thinking about going up and down all of those hills while carrying the supplies necessary to survive such a long trip.)

We were fortunate enough to meet them during their journey when they stopped in DC for a week.

In this episode, they share:

  • The power of female friendship

  • How traveling by bike has brought them closer to nature

  • How unplugging from technology for long stretches affects their perspectives

SPOILER: they did make it all the way to Florida where they'll be living for a few months, so sit back, relax, and enjoy hearing about their journey along the way.

Tune in to the episode on iTunesSoundCloud, or on our website.
