VeloCity Atlanta invited me to take part in their fully supported two-wheeled adventure on Saturday May 5th! But since racers gonna race, I'll be in Redlands California getting my legs shredded by the pro women. I asked them if I could pass along those entries, and they said yes! So i'm excited to share with you two rad women who will be riding in my stead. 

What is Velo City Atlanta? 

This fully-supported fundraising ride will take place on Saturday, May 5, 2018, in downtown Atlanta, with all routes starting from the field of Mercedes-Benz Stadium!
Featuring multiple distances for riders of all abilities, VeloCity will bring cyclists and the community together to support one of our city’s most important institutions. Grady Hospital is there for all of us — and participating in VeloCity is a way we can all be there for Grady!

 

Meet the riders!

What distance would you want to ride? I am interested in the 25 or 50 distance 

Have you done anything like this before? I rode a century GA 400 like a crazy person within my first 3 months of getting a road bike but I never fundraised. 

Is it on par with your current skill level or do you feel it will be a challenge? Yes, I am bike life! I’m good for 50 bout to clean these SPDs off and take my urban cycling to the next level. Lol 

What are you most nervous about/ most excited for? Excited to ride meet people and the opportunity for some dope bike content. Nervous: I need to research fundraising techniques but it's for a good cause so it should no be that hard. Lol 

Fundraising is optional, but always encouraged!
