Women supporting women through every phase of their experience in cycling makes the community vibrant. In week 18 of #talkofthettown, board member Cheryl Osborne (@superco777) remarks, "If there is nobody to help you out and give you a hand up when you're trying to make that decision whether or not to continue, they would generally just fall by the wayside." We agree and Executive Director @jmh16 is committing to bringing up the women's participation to 50% by 2025 from today's 30%. ⁠
⁠
This weekend is Women's Weekend. It's a great place to learn from World Champion @kimgeistcoaching about racing in an all-female environment. Link in bio. ⁠
