May Race Season is Ramping up!
The month of May is beautiful in Boise. We begin to have warmer and more predictable weather, our sunlight lasts a bit longer and the races start ramping up! The Boise VeloWomen have had a busy and fun month of May this season including the State Road Race, Boise UpCycle's Wednesday Night Short Tracks, the first of the SWICA Crits, The Lyle Pearson 200 and Knobby 9-5. Additionally, your Boise VeloWomen hosted a brand new race, The Gem Grit Grinder on May 20th, with huge success (click here to read more about GGG2017)
This weekend started the race season off with a bang, with team members racing in multiple disciplines across multiple states. Members raced the 1st of the Bob's Spring Breakout Series put on by Bob's Bicycles, Echo Red2Red MTB race in Echo, Oregon, and the 1st of the Oregon Gravel Grinder series - Gorge Gravel Grinder in The Dalles, Oregon. Read about the races below!
We had our first team meeting of 2017 that included pictures, fun, and team ride planning with Douglas Tobin; We have an exciting year to look forward to, and several new members we have welcomed to the team. Check out "Meet the Team" for our more "professional" pose, and see who we are! We are looking forward to many team rides and races coming up, and crazy excited to be coordinating TWO races this year - the 1st annual Gem Grit Grinder gravel race, and 2nd annual Crimson Cross cyclocross race.
We are very fortunate to have such loyal sponsors who continue supporting our team year after year. We are also excited to have formed new professional relationships that will help the women on our team continue to grow and improve as athletes. Please see our "Meet our Sponsors" page and click on the logos to learn more about each of our sponsors.
Happy New Year to all!
Thank you to those who have supported us this year, and especially those who continue to support us along our journey to cycling greatness and promotion. 2017 promises to be a year of new bike races locally, new competition in women's cycling, and a lot of fun on 2 wheels. When you think about your resolutions for the coming year, we hope riding a bike will be near the top of the list.
We will be announcing 2017 sponsors and our 2017 roster in the coming weeks, so stay tuned! We are excited to have most of our team returning, and to be adding some amazing new women as well!
Here are links to some local calendars for racing in 2017.
