About Naked Women’s Racing powered by TriBella
Naked Women’s Racing was founded in November 2010 by three competitive cyclists passionate about women’s racing. The team has grown to include 25 women in all categories of competitive cycling with a primary focus on road cycling. The team also competes in track, cyclocross, and mountain biking with national and state champions in each discipline. In 2012, the team incorporated a club to foster women who are cycling enthusiasts and thinking of trying out racing. The group of dedicated women athletes share a commitment to a healthy lifestyle through cycling as well as helping the Colorado community. Our goals are to encourage women to engage in a healthy lifestyle through the friendship, teamwork and fun that cycling offers; to assist in our community through our Ride for Reading service; to help others get to the next level through hard training and racing.; to increase the visability of our generous sponsors through participating in races, paid charity and team group rides while expecting our members to participate in social networking to provide positive support of our sponsors; and to be conscientious of our personal character on and off the bike so we can continue to promote the sport and our sponsors in a positive light while remaining “drama-free.”
