About Molly

The Mission: Share advice and inspiration to get girls and women inspired to embrace wellness and adventure!


Cycling and running are my passions, writing is my life, and luckily, I’ve found an amazing way to combine the two. In addition to running The Outdoor Edit and writing for other magazines, I’m the author of Saddle, Sore: Ride Comfortable, Ride HappyMud, Snow and Cyclocross (Deeds Publishing) and Fuel Your Ride (Rodale Press). My partner in life and crime Peter Glassford and I also co-host a podcast, The Consummate Athlete.

I’m a writer-at-large with Bicycling magazine, and I also do frequent work with RootsRated about adventure travel, Map My Fitness about running, and with Nylon about fitness and fashion. I also blog on here about active travel, fashion and lifestyle.


I’d love to hear from you about any fun adventure stories or tips you have, or any articles you’d love to see.

More about me:

I’m a certified USA Cycling coach, and we travel the country giving talks and clinics about riding, racing, training, nutrition and women’s issues. I’m the team manager for Aspire Racing, so we’re traveling to cyclocross races around the world… all while writing, writing and writing!

Before coming on with Bicycling as a ‘writer at large,’ I was an editor at Cyclocross Magazine, for three years where I wrote, edited, and managed the print and online magazines. Additionally, I wrote freelance articles for both cycling/athletic publications including Triathlete, Bicycling and Dirt Rag, as well as women’s publications.

  1. I want to order your book, but I’d like a hardcopy. Is that possible. I’ve experienced numbness in the lady parts and was wondering if the damage is permanent. thanks so much for the book.

  2. Just read your article called “outfitting the Clydesdale …” I know you didn’t create this term and I know you have no control over what a clothing company calls its larger sized line i.e. Colossal or flab but this is obesity bias and it is not acceptable. Imagine how it would sound if we used offense terms for African American riders or disabled riders with Down’s syndrome Etc. Obese riders are trying to get healthy. My husband is one of these guys and we own a bicycle shop. These terms are offensive to us. I am a obesity medical specialist and family physician. I am a member of OAC- the obesity action coalition. It is a national organization that educates people about obesity bias and discrimination. I have contacted them about this article. I hope that the cycling world especially those that write for cycling magazines or websites will make a conscious decision to stop using these terms. Thanks for listening.

Let me know what you think!
