ONE-ON-ONE WITH JULI FURTADO
Mountain biking pioneer, mom, entrepreneur, and troublemaker Juli Furtado,
goes one-on-one with our own troublemaker – Title Nine founder, Missy Park.
No More Shrink it and Pink it
As women, we want gear that performs, not just something smaller and pinker; which is why we love Juliana mountain bikes.
Tested, used, and approved by women; Juliana Bicycles are designed with proven geometry to meet the demands of our female riders and the trails they ride. Founded by Olympian and Mountain Bike Hall of Famer, Juli Furtado, these bikes kick so much butt we just had to share one with our customers!
Getting into and out of trouble is THE survival skill for women in the 21st century.
A few of my favorite trouble makers:
Ellen DeGeneres, Amy Schumer, Nellie Bly, Bethany Hamilton, Nikki Haley, Beyoncé, Susana Martinez, Martha Stewart, Tammy Duckworth, Missy Elliott, Susan Collins, Catharine Bond Hill, Venus and Serena Williams, Kathrine Switzer, Rosa Parks.
So, this winter, go out and make some trouble!

“I had always wanted to learn improv, but being in front of an audience without a safety net felt pretty scary. I finally decided to jump in and try one class. I’m so glad I took that risk! I ended up loving it and have been learning, performing, and teaching improv ever since.” (more…)
