BOULDER, Colo. - The Colorado High School Cycling League annual fundraising event is Saturday, May 10th, at Yeti Cycles, in Golden, with guest host Georgia Gould. The day will include a mountain bike ride with Georgia for youth ages 12-18 at North Table Mountain followed by a fun evening including beverages, dinner, silent auction, and an evening program.
Georgia Gould, Team Luna Chix, has been a fixture on the international Mountain Bike scene for the past 5 years. She has represented Team USA at 7 World Championships, 2 Olympic Games (Beijing- 2008, London- 2012) and 2 continental championships. Her palmares include an Olympic bronze medal (London, 2012), multiple US national championships and scores of race and series wins. She has been an outspoken advocate for women and youth in cycling, and she currently serves as one of 2 mountain bike representatives on the U.C.I. Athletes’ Commission.
Georgia said, "I believe strongly in supporting the development of the Colorado League. Mountain biking is a life-long sport that can help kids develop and maintain healthy habits. Plus, it is super fun, which is one of the many reasons to get more kids on bikes! I am really looking forward to meeting some of the racers!"
*Yeti Cycles will be hosting the event--so you know it's going to be a blast. 100% of the proceeds will go to supporting interscholastic cross country mountain biking in Colorado and Wyoming.
