The Vineyard’s Voice

Before it was known for the ferry ride, blue-shell crab and tangerine sunsets, my home, Martha’s Vineyard, was occupied by the Wampanoag Indians. The tribe is still around and has its own trust lands on the southwest part of the Vineyard. The Island is about 20 miles long east to west, not even as ... Read more

Breaking the Mold — Ashley Fiolek

Whew, hot summer so far! Florida has been sweltering, but I still love it here. My family and I kicked off the summer by heading down to Orlando and hitting up some hotels, so we could hang out at the amusement parks. Universal opened up a new “economy” hotel and we wanted to check ... Read more

Ashley Fiolek — Babes in the Dirt 5

Hope everyone’s spring/summer is starting off great! It’s super hot here in Florida right now, it’s weird because it was kind of chilly for a really long time, which is not normal in Saint Aug, but this last week was a scorcher! Today it was 95, but “felt like” 102 🙂 So last column ... Read more

MX School

I normally do most of my MX classes in the summer time but I recently had a “spring” class in Texas. It was at a track in Floresville, Texas. When I was growing up racing this was one of my favorite tracks to ride/race at. My family and I have been there many times ... Read more

Kurt Yaeger, Chet Cooper, Ashley Fiolek and China Press are DRLC Honorees

Usually when we hear about China, the stories focus on factories and goods, jobs shipped overseas and other news items that make the country sound uninviting. But when ABILITY Magazine’s Chet Cooper traveled to Beijing to meet some of his counterparts in publishing, he found himself forming lasting friendships. During that time, ABILITY Magazine and China ... Read more

Brrrrr….hope everyone is staying warm!

Brrrrr….hope everyone is enjoying the New Year and staying warm! We don’t have any snow here in Florida, but we have had some pretty cold weather and lots and lots of rain where I live. My family and I went to a Beach Blast here in St. Augustine to celebrate the New Year. It ... Read more

Ashley Fiolek — Mountain Biking

Hello Moto fans! This summer is going by quickly and as usual it is not boring! Me, Lindsey and my brother, Kicker, left my parents at Fort Wilderness (Disney World resort campground) and headed out to Nashville and stayed at my friend, Natalie’s house. We went and watched a Monster Truck race and had ... Read more

So darn cold!

My family and I took a trip back up to Michigan for Christmas and New Years.  We had a really good time but it was so darn cold! When it’s minus 12, you can’t really enjoy much. We flew into Grand Rapids, MI, and as we got closer, the pilot made an announcement: We ... Read more

Oh, the Winds

Late last summer, my mom and I planned a mother/daughter trip to Northern California to go wine tasting in Napa. But as the day to leave drew closer, we kept a close eye on the weather reports about Hurricane Irma. It came right down to the wire: The Category 5 storm wasn’t hitting on ... Read more

Fun and Hectic

My summer has been crazy, fun and hectic. I had to travel all over the US to do AFMX schools. I taught them in Texas, Illinois, Colorado and Washington. They were a lot of fun, and I got to bring my bike, so I had the chance to ride with everyone at all the ... Read more

Busy Summer

Since I am the ambassador for Husqvarna I am always involved when they do special events for women, and as I have mentioned in the past they put on quite a few of these which are always amazing! Recently we did a Babes Ride Out Day, it was April 27-29th in Gorman California, it ... Read more

Back on track!

Happy Spring! I hope your year has been going smoothly so far, and that you were able to get rolling on your 2017 resolutions. I’m all moved into my new tiny house, and I’m still in the process of getting everything set up. I thought it would be turnkey ready, as they say in ... Read more

My Tiny Home!

I hope everyone is having a good new year so far. As 2016 came to a close, I flew out to California for a Husqvarna event. They had a women’s ride day for the company, and asked me to come give tips and then ride with everyone. We took off through some trails and ... Read more

Three Weeks in Europe

Hey everyone, I’m writing this from New York City because the legendary Carnegie Deli is my dad’s favorite restaurant ever, and it’s closing down in December after almost 80 years. So that’s why we are here. Can you tell that my family loves to eat? Ha ha. I’m just back from Europe with my ... Read more

On the Go!

I just finished an MX class in Cali, picked up my new Husky, and am packing up to relocate back to the east coast, close to my parents! Over the last several months, I have been traveling to different states for my MX schools, while I’ve also have been getting addicted to racing my ... Read more

Happiest Riding!

  Since I’ve done riding, racing, acting and stunt work, a few of my friends from the recent Marvel show suggested that I go after even more acting and stunt gigs. So I signed up on a number of acting sites, some of them based on my friend’s Sto advice. Isn’t it nice when ... Read more

Time to Teach

Now that the weather is warming up, it’s time to pack away the snowboard. I really wish I could do it year round like riding a dirt bike, but I guess I’ll have to be satisfied with the few short months of the white stuff. I’ve also been riding a lot more for fun ... Read more

A Wishful Adventure

I have been traveling all over the place and loving every minute of it! My classes keep me busy, and yet I managed to squeeze in time to fly home to Florida for a quick “visit.” I put visit in quotes because it really wasn’t down time; I actually had an agenda. I’m looking ... Read more

Road Trippin’

Whew, I have been super busy with my Ashley Fiolek MX School. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to teach at first, but it’s been fantastic. I also find it inspirational to work with so many different people who, like me, are excited to ride. My friend, Ryan, and I decided to load up ... Read more

Mini-Vacay and Biking!

Recently, I have been catching up on some much needed rest from my travels. I have been going through all of my emails for class requests and setting up a new schedule for my AFMX schools. Actually, right now as I write this, I am headed out to Washington for an MX school. It will be the biggest AFMX ... Read more
