Hell yeah ladies, you did it!!! Next steps for all of us: continue to support them by watching the @NWSL, showing… https://t.co/DpsqCtdwBM
Recreated one of my favorite shots from an @afghancycles production that @jennygnichols took of @frozan_rasooli in Paris, 2017. (swipe) Frozan is DEFINITELY better at blowing bubbles!
Thanks for the snap @bailey_k
When I asked Kaitlin to marry me in May, I didn’t think I could feel any happier or grateful. But then she asked me to marry her on our recent trip to France, and I exploded, feeling so lucky that she chose me. So that’s 2 for 2 on proposals folks, it’s official! Can’t wait for all that’s to come in the many years to come! ❤️
Thanks for the photo @gordonklco !!!
Can’t wipe this grin off my face! Watched the final from home but am feeling so grateful that I was able to cheer this team on in France for a few of the games. To the women of the @uswnt, thank you for all you are doing for the sport, and for women and girls all over the world. You consistently bust through barriers, showing us all that anything is possible. Red, white and blue baby, so proud of all of you!! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
This team is EVERYTHING - now BRING IT HOME! @uswnt #oosa #LFG
U-S-A!!! Been cheering you on for 20 years, @uswnt! #LFG
Pre-gaming with a morning run down the Seine. Next stop: Reims to cheer on the @uswnt!! 🇺🇸

Nothin’ but views up here!! 😉
Mt Constitution on Orcas Island last weekend
An oldie but a goodie, especially giventhat it’s #worldbicycleday today!! I asked Whitney (@outlive.the.bastards) to go to Afghanistan with me to meet some kickass women and make a movie about them. That was way back in 2013 and I can’t tell you how grateful I am that she said YES! I don’t think I would have had the confidence to go had she not. And here we are 6 years later celebrating what has become @afghancycles on World Bicycle Day!
What does the bicycle mean to you? To me, it represents freedom and independence. If you have access to a bike, you are not reliant on anyone or anything to get you around. It’s good for the body, mind, soul, and environment. Not to mention it’s super fun!! Can’t ever stop thanking Whitney for saying YES to my invite to Afghanistan. If not for that experience, I think my view of the bicycle and the independence it offers would be much more limited.
I’ve been quietly training for my first half marathon for the past few months, and today was the big day. I’ll be honest, it was harder than I thought it would be. Huge thanks to my ❤️ @bailey_k for joining me for the final few miles - made a HUGE difference in getting me to the finish. Now it’s time for some stretching, icing, and booze 😉
It’s a good day when you and your sibs make it on to a @soundersfc’s twitter post 💙💚
Today marks one year since we premiered @afghancycles at @hotdocs_ - and what a year it has been! The film has screened at festivals and community screenings all over the world, picked up multiple rewards along the way, changed people’s perspective on the role bicycles can play in gender equality, shared a slice of Afghanistan with audiences near and far, and as of last month, has been released for online streaming. I am grateful for the experience of sharing this film with you all. Seeing old friends and loved ones all along the festival circuit has been a real treat, not to mention all the new friends and colleagues I’ve met throughout this whirlwind year. To the women in the film, as well as every single person who made the production from start finish happen (and there are a lot of you!) I thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Going through old photos and I stumbled across this gem from our final production of @afghancycles. @jennygnichols and I hadn’t seen @frozan_rasooli for nearly a year and a half. Spending time with her and catching up on all the things she had been through during our time apart was one of the most special and meaningful experiences of my life.

Just because #womenshistorymonth is over doesn’t mean you can’t still celebrate strong, inspiring women by watching @afghancycles. Link in bio.
I can’t stop looking at this photo 🤣
I can’t believe it’s already been a year. @jshush318, you would be so proud of the community you’ve left behind. Their resilience and support of one another has been so unbelievable, and I know that’s because they are emulating what you would have done if the situation was different. I continue to draw on the empathy you embodied in every aspect of your life, and when I feel that empathy slip away, all I have to do is look to those who were closest to you as they have shown nothing but empathy and compassion through the healing process ❤️
It is so fitting that I get to finally introduce you all to the brave young women from @afghancycles on #InternationalWomensDay! Each with their own unique and powerful story. I am so grateful to each of you for trusting me these past 6 years to get your story out to the world!
Looking for something to do tonight? I've got an idea...
Mark your calendars, @afghancycles is getting its online release - March 8th, International Women’s Day. That’s THIS Friday, as in day after tomorrow!! So excited to finally share it after nearly a year of festivals. Stay tuned over the next few days, more to come! 🚴🏻♀️🚴🏼♀️🚴🏽♀️🚴🏾♀️🚴🏿♀️
I want to shower you in beachside birthday picnics every single day. Happy happy birthday love! ❤️
