supporting women’s cycling through racing, activism and community involvement
Spokeswomen Racing is recruiting new members for its 2014-2015 team! We are open to all disciplines, categories, and skill levels.
Spokeswomen Racing is an all women team that focuses on competitive racing in road, cyclocross, triathlon, mountain, and track. Team members are committed to growing the sport of cycling for women. Spokeswomen Racing is also committed to empowering women outside of cycling through a partnership with Jubilee Women’s Center, a non-profit transitional house for homeless and low-income women. The riders volunteer at Jubilee by preparing meals, teaching wellness, bike maintenance, and technology courses, and working on site at the Capitol Hill facility.
We offer regular team rides, team social opportunities, great sponsorships, and a fun and supportive environment for becoming a better and stronger cyclist.
If you’re interested in becoming part of our team, please contact us or join us for our Meet the Team Ride on Sunday, October 12, 2014. Meet us for coffee at 9:15am at Pert’s Deli (120 Lakeside Ave, Seattle, WA 98122) for a 9:30am departure. This will be a social ride at a conversational pace, around the south end of Lake Washington (about 2 hours long). The ride may stop for 5-10 minutes along the way, but otherwise, be prepared for a continuous ride. These rides happen rain, wind, or sunshine! Bring a functioning road bike (full fenders are appreciated on damp days), helmet, water, some food, weather-appropriate clothing, a little money, and an extra tube in case you flat.
Hope to see you there!
