Cycling has become paramount in today’s everyday scheme. Not only racing, but daily commuting, leisure rides, and riding for exercise are becoming increasingly more commonplace. As more and more members of the Boston University community begin to participate with Cycling, and as our team continues to grow, we could not be more thrilled. Growing the sport or bicycle racing, especially the women’s field, is a part of what we do as committed cyclists. Our team boasts an outrageously high number of female racers (40%), a statistic we pride ourselves on given the historically male dominated stereotype of cycling. Getting other people excited about the pure and simple joy of riding and racing, and watching that simple enjoyment grow and propagate more riders is exactly what we want to be apart of. Having just finished a training weekend in the white mountains of New Hampshire this passed weekend with a crew of new BU Cycling members (and a couple of vets), it is clear that the enthusiasm we all feel for cycling is surely contagious, and is rapidly spreading.
In order for us to continue to grow the sport and our team as successfully as we have been doing, we must continue to maintain a healthy checking account. By donating to BU Cycling, you become part of a movement. Cycling has quite literally changed many of our lives here on the team, and we hope to continue this trend of betterment for many, many years to come. We hope to further our successes on and off the race course, in part, with your help.
