Race Team

581870_597928140231614_587249323_nOur application process is now closed. But if you are interested in getting to know other women who love to ride / race their bikes, have a great sense of humor (or enjoy people who do), feel good about giving back to the community that you live in – let us know – you’re welcome to meet up with us on or off the bike! We are accepting applications for racers from now until October 2014 for the 2015 season. If you still would like to try to join for the 2014 season because we do have women on injured reserve occasionally, we may be able to accommodate you. If you wish to join the club team, do so here!

RACE TEAM

Our team is an all-women’s cycling team based in Colorado.  In addition to being great ambassadors to cycling, we are also involved in the community.  All race team members are expected to volunteer for Ride for Reading (our nonprofit philanthropy) and our team race.  Before you apply, please understand that any race reimbursements are tied to the volunteer hours, race responsibilities, as well as your racing schedule.  Please see our 2013 Race Team Responsibilities to get a taste of what our 2014 race team responsibilities will be. Our race team is about giving back, mentoring new riders, and camaraderie. If you only want to race your bike, this IS NOT the team for you.

If you want to apply to our 2015 Race Team, all applicants are required to complete a team application.
