Profile of a Female Motorcyclist: Meet Lois

Have you ever heard the old saying, “you have not because you ask not?” Well, this applies to me and my next guest, Lois. I’m racking my brain trying to remember how I came across her website Lois On The Loose. You have to go take a look at all her accomplishments! Lois has several epic road trips under her belt, written two books (I’ve got to get these!!), a contributing writer and editor to several publications, and also does public speaking. Wow! Back to the old saying … I reached out to Lois earlier this year asking if she’d like to add her profile of a female motorcyclist to my blog. She said yes, but was about to leave on a trip and would do it when she had some spare time. And she did, so now I’m adding another lady rider to the mix. I am so glad I asked Lois. I think this is the 80th profile of a female motorcyclist! Join me in welcoming Lois Pryce from London, UK.
