Our Story

Grace, Sara, and Savannah pedaled the Pacific in 2017 with a desire to raise awareness about domestic child sex trafficking within their communities.  Sex trafficking is an intimidating topic, one of depth and complexity, so they wanted to create a space to talk about the issue with their friends and family in a welcoming way. They decided to do something so outside of their comfort zone that people couldn’t help but ask “why?” They taglined themselves as “hilariously un-athletic girls” and announced their plans to cycle 1,700 miles down the Pacific Coast. This immediately captured people’s attention and prompted them to dig deeper into their reason for riding.
