Will the COVID-19 pandemic affect the adventure?

Jess and Greg are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and have received booster shots. We will follow CDC guidance while in the United States and adhere to all public health ordinances in the countries and regions where we travel. This includes routine testing, mask wearing when indoors and among crowds, and maintaining social distancing.

How does Moxie travel on Jess’s motorcycle?

Moxie rides in RUFFLY’s K9 Moto Cockpit motorcycle dog carrier on the back Jess’s BMW G650GS motorcycle. RUFFLY has custom built the K9 Moto Cockpit for more than one hundred dog-loving motorcyclist all around the world. Check out our detailed Gear Guide video for more information about the K9 Moto Cockpit.

How do you ensure that Moxie is as safe as possible on the motorcycle?

Moxie has traveled thousands of kilometers in the K9 Moto Cockpit without an injury of any kind. The Cockpit’s cushioned design keeps her safe and comfortable while enjoying an authentic riding experience with Jess. Moxie is securely harnessed into the motorcycle dog carrier at all times and she wears eye protection. Check out this Gear Guide video about how we secure Moxie into her Cockpit and our Rider’s Guide article for a detailed breakdown of the safety considerations.

What is Girl Up?

No matter their background, girls have the power to transform themselves, their communities, and the world around them. Girl Up is a global movement of empowered young women leaders who defend gender equality. Through leadership development training, Girl Up gives girls the resources and platform to start a movement for social change wherever they are.

For those who stand with us in this movement, there is no rest until we achieve equal rights for every girl. Because when girls rise, we all rise.

Girl Up was founded by the United Nations Foundation in 2010, and continues to work across a global community of partners to achieve gender equality worldwide.

Is my donation to the Girl Up campaign tax deductible?

Yes, your donation to the GoRUFFLY Around the World supporting Girl Up campaign goes directly to Girl Up and it is tax deductible for U.S. taxpayers. So, donate now!

How is RUFFLY supporting the Girl Up campaign?

RUFFLY was founded on the idea that empowering female employees and artisans makes superior dog gear and a better future for us all. We believe it so deeply that we are donating 10% of gear sales during the around the world adventure.

We also created the Knotted Wristband specifically for the Girl Up campaign. It matches the color and design of our dog collars, harnesses, and leashes – and 100% of the wristband proceeds go to Girl Up.

So, you can donate directly or shop with RUFFLY to support Girl Up!

Are there any other ways that I can help support the Girl Up campaign?

Absolutely, yes! The easiest way is to share and repost content about the world adventure and encourage everyone you know to donate. Do all your dog-lover gift shopping with RUFFLY because 10% goes to Girl Up.

Please take up a collection at work and, if you’re a businessowner, contact us about becoming a corporate partner. Most importantly, help spread the word!

Can we arrange for you to share this inspiring story at my motorcycle dealership, pet store, or other?

We’d love to. We’re happy to do a talk and answer questions wherever our route and timeline allows so email us or call +1 323-454-3127.

Can we meet up for a ride or a coffee somewhere along your route?

That would be awesome! Email us and let us know where you are and what you have in mind for a meetup.

How can I follow along and know where you are on the journey?
