The Mission: Share advice and inspiration to get girls and women inspired to embrace wellness and adventure!
Hey everyone! I’m Molly Hurford, author, coach and lover of all things outdoors. Cycling and running are my passions, writing is my life, and luckily, I’ve found an amazing way to combine the two. In addition to running The Outdoor Edit and writing for other magazines, I’m the author of Saddle, Sore: Ride Comfortable, Ride Happy, Mud, Snow and Cyclocross (Deeds Publishing) and Fuel Your Ride (Rodale Press). I’m also the author of the upcoming middle grade Shred Girls novel series (Rodale Press 2019), and Shred Girls is also a website/brand for young girls interested in getting rad on bikes.
My partner in life and crime Peter Glassford and I also co-host a podcast, The Consummate Athlete.
I write for publications like Bicycling magazine, RootsRated, Map My Fitness, and Nylon about fitness and fashion as well as Outside for all things cycling, training and nutrition. I obviously also blog on here about active travel, fashion and lifestyle.
…And I’m a certified USA Cycling & PMBI-certified MTB and cycling coach as well as a Precision Nutrition Level 1 coach and a Yoga Alliance-registered teacher (200 hr), so we travel the country giving talks and hosting clinics about riding, racing, training, nutrition and women’s issues. (I’m also a Fast and Female Sport Expert!)
I’d love to hear from you about any fun adventure stories or tips you have, or any articles you’d love to see.

More about me:
I’m a certified USA Cycling coach, and we travel the country giving talks and clinics about riding, racing, training, nutrition and women’s issues. I’m the team manager for Aspire Racing, so we’re traveling to cyclocross races around the world… all while writing, writing and writing!
Before coming on with Bicycling as a ‘writer at large,’ I was an editor at Cyclocross Magazine, for three years where I wrote, edited, and managed the print and online magazines. Additionally, I wrote freelance articles for both cycling/athletic publications including Triathlete, Bicycling and Dirt Rag, as well as women’s publications.
