Inaugural CIW Cycling Team Rides In Venus De Miles
Saturday, August 25, 2018, 7:00 AM until 3:00 PM
Come join Colorado Ivy Women for the Venus de Miles bike ride on August 25th in Boulder. Venus de Miles brings more than a thousand women together for sisterhood, community, and a great time, all in support of Greenhouse Scholars as we cultivate extraordinary leaders to change low-income families and communities. There are options for 33 mi, 65 mi, or a full century to accommodate a variety of effort levels. Julia will be doing the 65 mi and would love for any company along the way or at the finish line. You can reach her to coordinate for training, carpooling, and post-race festivities at firstname.lastname@example.org.
About Venus De Miles
Venus de Miles began in Boulder County, Colorado in 2008. A group of Greenhouse Scholars' staffers wanted to create a unique fundraising event just for women - with all the perks and touches women would appreciate. The event quickly grew in popularity, bringing together thousands of active women in the celebration of sisterhood and community. In 2012, the Greenhouse Scholars program was established in Illinois and Venus de Miles found it's way to the beautiful community of Lake Forest.
To date more than 14,000 women have participated in a Venus de Miles event and those numbers continue to grow as women invite their sisters, their daughters, their mothers, and their friends to join them for this unforgettable day of fun and fitness for an exceptional cause.
