Women Solidarity & Biking: Venus de Miles 2015

buddies

Riding through one of the greatest cities to ever stand – downtown Denver, Colorado. DenverSpeax, 2014.

In order to stay motivated and active, I have signed up for my first Coloradan, non-alleycat bike ride! The Venus de Miles is taking place in Boulder, Colorado, this summer on August 29th, 2015. It’s an all-female ride, created to support women and create sisterhood. Venus de Miles is actually Colorado’s first all-women’s road ride! What an amazing way to come together with other, extraordinary women in the bike community. 

Registration opened Feb 13th for the different rides:

START TIMES
Aug. 29 6:45 AM – 100-Mile Ride Start
Aug. 29 8:00 AM – 62-Mile Ride Start
Aug. 29 9:30 AM – 30-Mile Ride Start
Aug. 29 11:00 AM – Festival Begins

This year, they’re trying something new and allowing you to try your hand at fundraising $200 by August 16th for reduced registration cost. If you choose this option and are able to raise at least $200 by August 16th, the registration price is just $30! When you reach the fundraising goal, you will also receive a complimentary pair of Venus de Miles arm warmers and a Venus de Miles visor. If you’re unable to raise the funds before August 16th, you pay the lessor amount of the following; the difference of the funds you did raise and the $200 goal OR $65 which is the difference between the discounted and regular full price registration cost. This is the option that I’ve gone with in order to push myself to raise more, and can’t wait to surpass my goal! If you would like to donate to my fundraiser for Venus de Miles, click here.

REGISTRATION COST
$75 through Memorial Day, May 25th
$95 from May 26th through August 28th
$115 for onsite registration, August 29th
