    • Women’s Wednesday: Saudi Arabian Women Get Their First-Ever Bike Race

      Submitted by 303cycling on April 25th, 2018

      Earlier this month, 47 women stood with their bikes on the starting line to make history in Saudi Arabia. Five years after the country officially decreed that women could legally ride bicycles—albeit only for recreation, in parks, if dressed modestly, and with a male guardian present—an intrepid group of riders lined up for their first-ever public race: a 10-kilometer circuit in Al Jawhara Stadium in the Red Sea city of Jeddah. Read more

      • Women’s Wednesday: Becky Furuta on Cycling through Grief

        Submitted by 303cycling on December 20th, 2017

        By Becky Furuta Under the circumstances, the frosting-like scent of powdered sugar and vanilla was almost putrid. I felt my stomach lurch ever so slightly as I made my way toward a row of merengues and colorful French macarons, illuminated under the silky glass of a pastry case like fish swimming in an aquarium. ARead More

        • Women’s Wednesday – Cyclocross Racing: The Cross of Life

          Submitted by 303cycling on September 13th, 2017

          I’ve buried two parents and survived worse things. There’s no race I can’t get through. That’s not to say that life doesn’t have more curve balls for me. Of course it does. And by now you’re either wondering if this is a metaphor or if,å like Dorothy, this has all been a dream. And I’ve proved to myself that my pain and suffering is entirely temporary and every time I suffer through something whether it’s a race or a death or finding out my dad wasn’t my bio dad after all, that’s when this muscle memory I have seems to get stronger.  Read more

          • Women’s Wednesday: Where the Sidewalk Ends – Bike Commuting with Katie Macarelli

            Submitted by 303cycling on August 9th, 2017

            By Katie Macarelli It’s no surprise that I dislike driving my car. I loathe driving it to work. Today the plan was to drop off the car at a somewhat sketchy (but reliable) Subaru service shop for a routine oil change. It’s only about 1.5 miles from our office…but it’s along a dangerous strip ofRead More

            • Women’s Wednesday: The “C” Word.

              Submitted by Nicole Odell on April 5th, 2017

              by Cheri Felix Something has been a bee in my bonnet for some time now and while I am pretty sure anyone who reads this is “my choir” I thought I’d share. Perhaps it will be a public service announcement. And a warning. Last year we women at 303 were exposed to what amounts toRead More

                Submitted by Nicole Odell on March 8th, 2017

                From BeyondType1: This Body WRITTEN BY: Becky Furuta My body and I have a long history. It’s a story of loyalty and betrayal, of adventures and near misses, of love and awkwardness and everything in between. We’ve been together for 37 years, and during that time, my body has been my most glorious friend. When IRead More

                • Women’s Wednesday: Self-Deprication

                  Submitted by Nicole Odell on February 8th, 2017

                  By Khem Suthiwan Self-deprecation is something I have never understood. Why do people do it? Is it because they don’t believe in themselves? Do they think they are not worthy of being an awesome human being? Whatever the reason may be, I wish it would stop. People often don’t believe in themselves…especially women. How canRead More
