Kristen & Ville Jokinen/Joy Ride

On 2/16/17, Kristen and Ville Jokinen rode their Surly disc trucker touring bikes into the southernmost coastal community of  Ushuaia Argentina.  Having started this adventure ...  in Prudhoe bay Alaska some twenty months prior, the 18,215 miles that the couple peddled during their journey across two continents combined with the kindness from those they meet along the way is the subject of Kristen’s new book titled Joy Ride, A bike odyssey from Alaska to Argentina. 
 On episode 37 of Bend Magazine’s The Circling Podcast, Kristen and Ville join me in our new studio to share more of their story.  Kristen shares why she wrote Joy Ride, she and Ville share more about their personal lives, they discuss the success of the book, life lessons they’ve learned during their adventures and just how good and pure humanity can be. 
 Kristen, Ville,  Thanks again. Thanks for taking the time out of your busy book tour, and Kristen, thank you for writing this book.  It’s been said that people don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it. If this is true, get ready to sell a lot of books.
Podcast Guest: Ville and Kristen Jokinen
