Experience what it’s like to spend over 4,000 miles riding across the country with the Women’s Freedom Ride in Kickstands Up!


Divorced, in her fifties and tired of watching other people living interesting lives on television, Paula O’Kray wanted something new to write about. With only a few hours experience on long motorcycle rides, Paula made the decision to ride across the United States with the Women’s Freedom Ride. She found what she was looking for, and a whole lot more. Join Paula on a two-week odyssey as she rides across the states experiencing highs and lows, fun times and danger, sharing laughter, gifts, advice, and deep emotions in a learning curve that’s more like a cliff. You’ll also learn about the important bonds of new friendships and the support of readers, friends and family that allowed Paula to sustain the harsh conditions she faced on and off the road. You’ll feel like you’re right there with her on the bike!



Paula O'Kray is a graphic designer, columnist, and Wisconsin native. Mother of two and grandmother of four, Paula lives in central Wisconsin with her fuzzy half lab, half chow Ms. K and spends her time considering new and interesting adventures that will continue to pull her out of her comfort zone.
