Dare to Soar


To dare: to have the courage to do something, a challenge especially to prove courage.

Have you ever wanted to soar with the eagles and feel on top of the world? Climbing mountains offers a unique opportunity to do just this, but it does not come without its challenges which take courage to overcome. So then why would you choose to climb?

For many it is an almost spiritual experience that involves leaving behind the material things of the world and reconnecting with one’s deepest sense of self. The experience is heighted by the physical exertion, the crisp clean unpolluted air and the presence of nature in all its glorious forms that surrounds you as you tackle the ascent. It is a chance to disconnect with the constant bombardment of everyday life, the mundane routines and the demands they place on you. Something about this experience brings into clear focus the urgency of life, the vibrance and restorative power of nature and the simplicity of what really matters to our well-being and contentment.

The physical and mental exertion, which is real, and the constant awareness of imminent danger from the terrain, the weather, the wildlife and our own physical reaction to the high altitude add to the constant pump of adrenaline that awakens your senses and leaves you feeling more alive than ever before. The higher you go, the more intense the experience and the thrill of reaching the peak crowns the feeling of accomplishment quelling any remnant of exhaustion while reaffirming the notion that with courage and perseverance you can achieve anything; but you must be willing to Dare!

Beyond the thrill of conquering a bucket list feat and truly allowing you to soar with the eagles, climbing offers a multitude of lasting health benefits, both mental and physical!

Bikers for Boobies Cancer Awareness Campaign


This year in commemoration of Breast Cancer awareness, the Women Bikers’ Association, (WBA), led an initiative dubbed Bikers for Boobies to raise awareness on the disease within its biking community and to the wider public. Throughout the month of October in partnership with Cancer Café, Inked Sisterhood, and Throttle Queens clubs, the ladies disseminated key messages and facts on cancer through our social media platforms to put spotlight on myths and realities around cancer for people to be better informed about the disease and its impact.

In culmination of the campaign, the bikers conducted a ‘Ride for Cancer’ to Sagana with over 90 male and female bikers including doctors, health experts, and cancer warriors riding from Nairobi to educate us more about the disease. During this event they conducted a series of activities including breast ultrasounds for 15 women conducted by volunteer doctors, speed-date group talks on nutrition, causes, treatments, and types of cancer and also heard from the cancer warriors who shared their personal testimonies of hope and courage on how they are living with the disease.

Prior to this, WBA hosted an insightful Webinar dubbed, ‘The Pink Circle’ where experts shared information about cancer to debunk myths around it as well as listened to breast cancer advocates and personal testimonies to learn more about screening, early detection, and various cancers prevalent in men and women in Kenya. In addition, WBA organised a successful ‘Pink Friday’ selfie day where both male and female bikers were mobilised to post a selfie wearing anything pink and dedicate it to someone they knew that has been affected by cancer and all those caring for cancer survivors.

In running this campaign, WBA’s objective was to see an increase in awareness on cancer and early detection that speaks to their campaign slogan Check Often, Detect Early, Save Lives.

EXTREME QUOTE


“Courage to me is doing something daring, no matter how afraid, insecure, intimidated, alone, unworthy, incapable, ridiculed or whatever other paralyzing emotion you might feel. Courage is taking action….no matter what. So you’re afraid? Be afraid. Be scared silly to the point you’re trembling and nauseous, but do it anyway.”

– Richelle E Goodrich
