"The bicycle has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world," suffragist pioneer Susan B. Anthony said in 1896. And in the United States, women still bicycle at significantly lower rates than men. But with YOUR support, the Bicycle Racing Association of Colorado (BRAC) remedies this disparity. Starting with an annual Women's Summit, where we work to engage women in bicycle planning and policy making, BRAC is committed year-round to providing opportunities for women's participation at all levels. BRAC builds confidence, camaraderie and community while providing health-benefits that last a lifetime for women of all ages and skill levels. From offering mentoring events and skills clinics to creating women’s-only race days, BRAC wouldn’t be able to encourage women to take their two-wheeled journey without your support. With your help, we will continue fighting for a nation where sports payouts are fair, races are family-friendly, barriers-to-entry are safe and affordable, opportunity equal, and discrimination a thing of the past.
