We are friends from Portland, Oregon who share a love for cycling, music, comedy and West Coast culture. We’ve spent the better part of a decade riding, racing, adventuring, and working in the bike industry. Our goal is to tell stories that we don't hear in mainstream media from the people we all want to hang out with. We don’t take ourselves too seriously and neither should you. In our minds, a casual environment breeds authentic storytelling and that’s all we can ask for in our podcast. So let’s hang out!

Hang Out With New Friends!
I was delighted to hear about another women's cycling-focused, Portland-based podcast! Felt like making new friends. Conversation is beautifully unguarded and relaxed. Can't wait to hang out again!
In a time where we can all use a little more humor and strong female role models in our lives, Anna and Abby deliver equal measures of both. Can't wait for the next episode. Keep up the good work ladies!
I won't miss an episode
Anna and Abby make you feel like you're sitting right there with them. They give a glimpse into the cycling life in the NW but have the talent and potential to make any conversation interesting.
