International Women’s Day

Tomorrow, Saturday, March 8 is International Women’s Day. On this day we can reflect on and be inspired by the women who have done so much to move us forward. It’s also a day to bring awareness to what we still need to strive for. On the cycling front, much has been done to bring equality to our sport. Women have been campaigning to get equal opportunities for all levels of racers. Do your part to get involved and keep the momentum going. You can make it happen!
