“I am so thrilled to be part of the Tour de Cure Women’s Series this year” said Robin. “The Women’s Cycling Association and I are truly passionate and committed to women in cycling and feel that the Women’s Series will help encourage women to get involved in cycling and, at the same time, raise critical funds to stop this growing epidemic.” According to the American Diabetes Association, of the nearly 29 million children and adults in the U.S. with diabetes, 13.4 million of them are women. People of all ages, backgrounds and gender are welcome to ride in support of women’s cycling and the American Diabetes Association’s movement to Stop Diabetes. Besides donating to a great cause there are many Reasons to Ride in the Tour de Cure Women’s Series – Team members get the chance to ride with a pro, get a free goodie bag with a WCA tee and Primal Wear gifts, and win some other great prizes for top fundraisers – including the opportunity to win the inaugural WCA Kit – ALL while raising funds for a great cause! Robin even provides training tips for riders at the link below.
