Goal

We are a small Seattle-area women's cycling team with about 25 members. Our mission is to promote women's bike racing, support the development of female cyclists, and give back to the cycling community and other charitable community causes.


2019 has been a big year for us so far. In addition to adding 7 new members, we also fielded two 5-person all female teams for the Memorial Day 24-hour mountain bike relay race held in Spokane. On top of that, after much hard work, our team finally earned our not-for-profit 501(c)(3) designation which means that your tax donation is now tax-deductible! While fun and rewarding, our 2019 activity costs were/are not insignificant ($400 subsidy for the two relay team entry fees, $600 for the 501c3 application fee, and ~$800 in race entry fee reimbursements). 


Currently, our revenue relies entirely on membership fees, which we intentionally keep as low as we possible ($55/year/member) so as not to be a barrier to entry (by comparison, other cycling teams in Seattle typically charge $150-200/year for membership). Even while striving to keep our overhead costs (~$450/year excluding the 501c3 fee) as low as possible, our 2019 membership revenue will be insufficient to meet our 2019 expenses and continue to provide critical program support -- support designed to reduce financial barriers and increase racing and developmental opportunities for our members .


This is where we are asking for your support.  With your help, we can continue to thrive as an organization and support our members' growth and participation in bike racing and community involvement. Some examples of how your contribution may be used are listed in the donation tab on this page.

Thank you for your support!
