A Colorado Women’s Cycling Project, Naked Women’s Racing was founded November, 2010 by three competitive cyclists passionate about women’s racing and simply getting more women on bikes. The team has grown to include 100+ women in all categories of competitive cycling. The team competes in cyclocross, mountain biking, road and track. In 2012, the team incorporated a club to foster women who are cycling enthusiasts and thinking of trying out racing. Though we support the beginning racer, we’ve won several state and national team and individual titles. Drink Naked. Ride Naked!
These sponsors support getting more women on bikes. You should support them, too!
