Kailey Kornhauser and Marley Blonsky are bike riders on a mission – a mission to change the perception of who rides bikes. All Bodies on Bikes, a Shimano Originals film, follows Kailey and Marley on a two-day bikepacking trip along the Corvallis to Coast Trail, a 65-mile route through the gorgeous Oregon Coast Range. The pair, who both self-identify as fat, bond over their love of bicycle adventure and their shared desire to build a more welcoming and diverse cycling community.


“Nobody was talking about size inclusion or what it’s like to be a fat person who rides bikes,” Marley explains. “We realized we could contribute to this and we could make a difference. We want people to feel empowered that they can ride a bike wherever they want to go.”

I'm not fat but I can't squeeze between parked bikes on the Sheffield stands at work, especially if they are MTBs with downhill bars.

It's a good film, highlights one of the advantages of riding a bike in that you can get away from it all and turn a gear.

I hope they lubed those chains and bearings after riding their bikes in the sea!

Other than that, good stuff. I heartily approve.

There's always time for riding along with a bunch of flowers in your bar bag.

Really good, I have shared it further afield

Oh, we are so anal! I thought the same thing.

And so, clearly, did the film makers because there's a message at 13:13 to put our minds at ease.
What's so funny about peace, love and understanding?

As a big fat dyke on a bike, that often gets told I don't look like a cyclist. Yay, good campaign!
