The 8-woman team, composed of 6 women from our very own neighborhood, set out from Oceanside, CA on June 20th. The ladies kept a grueling pace, averaging 19.14 mph, where the previous 8-woman record was 16.57mph. They crossed the country in 6 days, 12 hours and 58 minutes. Out of the 12 teams that left California, one was unable to complete the race. The other 11 teams reached the Citydock in Annapolis, MD, within 2 days of each other and BLAG finished only a little over 1 day behind the 8-person open winner, Team Riverside (US), which consisted of 7 males and 1 female rider. is so proud of the Bike Like A Girl team. We enjoyed tracking you across the US. First California, then Colorado, a stop off in Missouri, in familiar Pennsylvania, and now back to Annapolis, MD! What a great experience to have been tied to such incredible and powerful women. BLAG has inspired so many and has raised money to support initiatives which empower and encourage young women through cycling. president and avid cyclist, Adam Hewison, was there to represent as the ladies crossed the finish line at 4:30am, Saturday morning. He said that it was a touching and exciting moment.

So, congrats Bike Like A Girl. You women are amazing and we are so proud to have been one of your sponsors.
