The Moxie Ride


The Moxie Ride

Cycling coast to coast to discover the amazing power of people

Introducing The Moxie Ride
  • In 2011, Ann set off on an epic ride from San Francisco to New Jersey, in what the team named The Moxie Ride,
    covering 11 states, 4,420 miles in 67 days on a quest to discover the professional pulse of our society
  • During The Moxie Ride, Ann brought along a cameraman and they interviewed people across the country
    to understand what people love about their jobs, and at the end, she produced a documentary entitled Work Matters
  • In 2012, Ann and her friend Jeff cycled The Moxie Ride 2 from Key West, FL to Bar Harbor, ME, to discover
    the courage people have to be remarkable at work and to learn what drives them to be passionate about their jobs
  • In 2013, Ann cycled across the great state of Iowa with a few other intrepid souls (10,000+ cyclists to be more precise)
    in the 41st annual RAGBRAI
  • In 2014, Ann and her friend Jeff cycled The Moxie Ride 3 from Seattle to San Diego (actually they passed San Diego and touched the border of Mexico)
  • In 2016, Ann and her friend Roger cycled The Moxie Ride 4 from Crater Lake in Oregon to Yosemite in California in her first self-supported bike ride
