View Full Version : Looking for Women to Join Twin Cities Velo Bella

02-15-2008, 05:17 PM
I'm starting my recruitment drive right now.

We're looking for a few or many good women to ride with this season. We are a really fun and approachable club with the cutest kits in town.

Everyone is welcome, even if you're brand new to cycling and just want to learn what it's all about. We encourage all disciplines: road, mountain, cross, tri, track, whatever you want to ride.

We are sponsored by an awesome local bike shop NOW Bikes, located in St. Paul and Arden Hills, from whom we receive discounted gear and service.

And if you do decide to race, you are qualified to get great discounts from our national sponsors.

If you've been considering joining a club, now is the time to do it!

We will have two weekly rides leaving from each NOW Bikes location and one Sunday Velo Bella social ride.

Our season kick-off meeting is coming up next month.

Contact me if you're interested in joining, or visit one of the NOW locations and pick up a brochure.

Happy riding!

Kate :)

I'm pretty sure they have a VB group there. One of the women who used to ride with us moved there a couple years ago. It might be worth checking into.

They do have a VB DC area group, check out www.velobella.org or go directly to http://velobella.org/team_racerchicks.ht also here is the link to the mid atlantic groups blog http://vbmidatlantic.blogspot.com/

Hope those help!

I am jealous of the Minneapolis group! I am the only one in South Florida( I am connected with the Georgia/N.Carolina group) There supposedly were a few down here but they were only recreational riders- no racers, and they do the slower training rides around here, so I have yet to met them :(

thansk for the links I searched the webs but used the wrong search words

since summer is coming I am looking for bike routes, but I''m too scared in DC to go out on my own!

I sent off an email and I hope to hear back soon

ps pyxichick I never realized how close by I lived when I was in SP. I biked down there once a week for volunteering.

mad, I hope you find a group to ride with. I think you'll love it.

Anyone else out there in the Twin Cities curious about racing, check out Midwest Women's Cycling Made Real, which sponsors an intro to bike racing clinic next weekend.
