Dense boobs

I recently had to have a breast MRI done for diagnostic screening. I have the trifecta of bad luck in that I have a history of breast cancer on both sides of my family, I am now 40, and I have dense breasts. Unfortunately, having dense breasts means that regular mammography screening is insufficient for me. […]

3 Days, 60 miles, and 4 blisters

As with each one of my seven 3Day walks, I could not have made it without my amazing team sherpas and walker stalkers who cheered us on every step of the way. Day 1 We started Day 1 at the Opening Ceremonies at the Del Mar Fairgrounds and walked down the coast through Del Mar Village. I […]

Veterans, Survivors, and Heroes

In honor of Veterans’ Day tomorrow, I thought this quote honors all of our heroes, military and survivors alike.

While The Boob Ride prides itself on being a fun event for a good cause, we never lose sight of seriousness of the disease. If you would like us to add your breast cancer heroes to our remembrance wall, please contact us here.

In honor of my mom’s triumph over breast cancer.

In support of the survivors: Diane Anderson, Briana Baldwin, Sheila Carey, Maria Chimowicz, Jennifer Dempsey, Anne Ducan, Cinda Flynn, Pam Hernandez, Maria Jaramillo, Suzanne Jackson, Jaime Jenkins, Rachel Kelley, Feili Lee, Linda McCarthy, Bernadette Peterson, Michelle Przemieniecki, Linda Pisano, Anita Richards Savitz, Mary Lou Sullivan, Adriane Wallace, Blanche Wilson, Carole Wilson, Jaime Wilson, Patty Witt, and Dacy Yee.

In memory of Lucy Bogarin, Edna Carey, Cathy Cohen, Patricia Ann Ford, Heather Sainsbury, Maryanne Sosnowski, Donna Strauhal, and Janine Walker.

As a former bra analyst

It is no secret that I wear many hats and have had more jobs than I can count over the years, but one of the most memorable jobs I’ve had was becoming a bra analyst at Victoria’s Secret during college. I worked my way up from a simple seasonal greeter to an all powerful bra analyst. Wielding trusty measuring tape, I measured women and helped them find a bra that actually fit. Most women I measured had no idea what their actual bra size was. Bra sizing can be difficult for most women, but it gets even trickier after a mastectomy.

In conversations with my survivor friends, bra type and bra fit becomes a substantial issue for them post reconstructive surgery. I stumbled across this blog today, Bra tips post surgery, and it gives some great advice about bra fitting during treatment/post-surgery.
And if you are wondering what to do with your bras that you can no longer wear – we’ll take them! The Boob Ride is proud to use your bras to decorate our rest stops and party venue on the ride. Big or small, we’ll take them all!

The Pink Bra (Maglia Rosa)

In 2015, The Boob Ride added the Pink Bra, aka the Maglia Rosa. This newly and highly coveted award is for women only (sorry fellas)! This award is given to the Best Woman overall on the D-Cup route. While purely a popularity contest, the Maglia Rosa is still quite the award. Our first winner was Kim […]

The Yellow Bra

The most coveted award in all of cycling is the yellow jersey in the Tour de France. Well, it was until The Boob Ride started awarding the Yellow Bra. This sexy thing is awarded to the person that appears to have arrived first on the D-cup 90 mile route. While The Boob Ride is not […]
