We kicked off the off season* this past weekend with a team meeting, enjoying vegan chili from our team chef, Sam, and lots of other yummy treats. It was great to celebrate all of the fantastic activities that we’ve done this past season and plan for 2019.
A few (of the many) 2018 highlights include—
Racing the Philly Phlyer TTT in March
Elisabeth winning the MASS series for Elite women
Eve and Mary on the podium at the Media Hometown Cycling Classic
Helping coordinate the WTF Cycling Mixer
Caitlin winning the Bicycle Coalition’s Youth Cycling Award
Emma and Elisabeth on the podium at one of their favorite technical cyclocross races: Sly Fox
Volunteering and working with Bicycle Coalition Youth Cycling, Neighborhood Bikeworks, Little Bellas, and Women’s BikePHL Devo squads
And finally, welcoming a whole crew of new members including:
Many of the above new folks participated in Women’s BikePHL Devo this past year and will be volunteering in the spring. Applications for the 2019 cohorts will be opening soon.
In 2019, there are rumors of rosey challenges, a return of No Scrubs CX, more cx clinics, and a lot more cats on bikes. We can’t wait to #sendit into the new year.
*Emma and Elisabeth are racing twice each this week at cyclocross nationals while the rest of us will be cheering from home.
