All Bodies on Bikes by Shimano

Apr 1, 2021 | Bikepacking, Fear

I love this film. It’s so real. Kailey Kornhauser and Marley Blonsky, the two cyclists featured in this film, are honest and open about what they have experienced as fat women in this world. From being left behind on group rides to struggling with disordered eating, their experiences are relatable. I found myself tearing up and laughing along and cheering for them through the whole film – to say nothing of how I really want to try bikepacking now.

My favorite quote from Kornhauser:

“I’m not out here to fix my body or make it look a certain way. My body might change but it might not. The primary reason we go is to have fun.”

 Amen to that.

Ride Their Route

You can find details on the Corvallis to Sea trail at the Corvallis 2 Sea website. There are both bike and hiking routes available as they work on building this multi-use trail.

I have mapped it on Komoot, with an overnight at the Big Elk Campground. Overnight parking is available at the Benton County Fairgrounds. (See instructions for avoiding a ticket here.)
