Joy Ride: A Bike Odyssey from Alaska to Argentina

July 26, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Adventurer Kristen Jokinen will read from her wildly entertaining account of two years spent bikepacking, Joy Ride. “What is most remarkable about Kristen and Ville Jokinen’s bike trip from the top of Alaska to the tip of Argentina is not only the two years on the road, 20,000 miles ridden, the salt deserts, or the many mountain passes over 16,000 feet, but how the couples’ wide open hearts led them into homes, cafes, schools from big and small towns up and down the Americas…The Jokinen’s commitment to a life of adventure traveling the world on bicycles is a gift to all.” — Lee Montgomery
Kristen Jokinen is from Bend, Oregon. She has worked as a wild land firefighter, a teacher, a real estate agent, and currently as an international speaker and author.
