These women are building communities that propel women and girls in the outdoors.
Throughout the month of March, we celebrated the women who move us forward. They are building communities that propel women and girls in cycling and the outdoors. They teach us that this is not a podium finish, it is an ongoing mission to reach an evolved balance. Most importantly, they remind us that cycling is for everyone.
In the spirit of progress, we asked some of our brand ambassadors around the world to share their own stories of how they are driving change. These women are breaking down barriers to make cycling and the outdoors more fun and inclusive for women.
