Female Cyclists, Rejoice! Registration Open for Venus de Miles, Colorado’s Only All-Women’s Road Ride
(February 27th, BOULDER, COLORADO) – For all you cycling passionistas, the wait is over. Registration is now open for the fifth annual Venus de Miles, Colorado’s first and only all-women’s road ride. Join us for this year’s event on Sunday, August 26th 2012, in Boulder County.
The wildly popular event draws women who are passionate about cycling, sisterhood and supporting Greenhouse Scholars, a Boulder based non-profit organization that provides mentorship and scholarship support to high-performing, under-resourced students.
To date, Venus de Miles has raised over $381,000 for Greenhouse Scholars. And, to keep the momentum going this year, organizers are requiring each participant to fundraise $75 for the cause (in addition to the cost of registration). With 74 Scholars in the Greenhouse Scholar program, the fundraising requirement ensures each rider can contribute a minimum of $1 per Scholar.
