Storyteller and Creator
Molly Hurford is a journalist in love with all things cycling, running, nutrition and movement-related. When not outside, she’s writing about being outside and healthy habits of athletes or interviewing world-class athletes and scientists for The Consummate Athlete podcast, website and book, 'Becoming A Consummate Athlete.' She’s the author of multiple books and writes regularly for publications including Bicycling magazine, Outside + Nylon.
Molly is a little obsessed with getting people—especially women—psyched on adventure and being outside. Her recent project, Shred Girls, is a young adult fiction series and online community focused on getting girls excited about bikes. She regularly hosts talks and runs clinics for cyclists and teaches yoga online and IRL… And in her spare time, the former Ironman triathlete and cyclist now spends time racing ultra-runs on trails or can be found out hiking with her mini-dachshund DW and husband Peter.

I LOVE listening to Molly Hurford on the Consummate Athlete Podcast. She cracks me up! I listen to her and often laugh out loud, so that definitely helped with the run.
Great podcast that offers real world, common sensical advice for athletes balancing professional and family obligations. Every episode has lots of great tips for self improvement.
I've worked with Molly on two different events, one at Rapha NY and one at Rapha DC. She's incredibly engaging and a natural host, sharing information on training, nutrition, comfort on the bike, and pretty much any other bike related topic you can think of, in a constructive and positive way. Between the two events, it's been amazing to see her tailor the presentation to the very different crowds we've had for each, making the talks feel custom-fit for each audience we had. -Rapha Cycling Club D.C. Coordinator Ed Nessen
Molly is a fantastic presenter, even from 4000 miles away, she was able to really connect with the audience of my women’s coaching conference. -Chantal Thompson, HP Coordinator at the Ontario Cycling Association
Molly's talk was so informative and fun and I truly believe that the girls and adult women on the Zoom had a great time while learning. I think in this new world of Zoom learning, Molly should teach a class to teachers on how to keep people engaged in learning. -Dolores Diaz, NY NICA GRIT Coordinator
