Women Race Bikes Hoping to Give Women’s Professional Cycling a Better Voice
The site name says it all – Women Race Bikes. But they also don’t get a lot of coverage, sponsorship, prize money, etc. Women Race Bikes is hoping to change that. Founded by Sarai Snyder, WRB hopes to build on the success of Girl Bike Love and Cyclofemme, which Sarai has also used to help improve the state of women’s cycling. While GBL and CycloFemme focused more on the riding aspect, WRB will specifically cover the racing side of things. Whatever women are racing, WRB will cover it including road, TT, mountain, CX, track, even BMX racing. The team led by Sarai even plans to have a custom App built by the creators of Tour Tracker to make following women’s racing even easier.
Currently, WRB is in the fundraising stage with a Flexible Funding campaign through Indiegogo. Ending on July 29, WRB hopes to raise $80,000 to help get the site of the ground and create a one stop shop for everything women’s racing.
