Felt Freedom Ambassadors: Creating A Fun Local Shop Ride

Since sponsoring out first athlete, the legendary, eight-time Kona World Champion triathlete, Paula Newby-Fraser, Felt has been dedicated to supporting female athletes at all levels of competition, and across all levels of experience. Through our commitment to helping others succeed, we’ve formed the Felt Freedom ambassador squad of like-minded women who are passionate about growing their cycling communities and empowering other women to achieve their goals on the bike. Elizabeth Young is a Freedom ambassador in Southern California, and she's keen to share how she helped create a fun and supportive group ride at her local shop.

The Velo Pasadena Girl Gang has grown over the past year. Some of our novice cyclists have now joined the second ride of the month that consists of intermediate and seasoned cyclists. This has been exciting for me and the shop owner Nevrik because we love to see our women improve. It has also been a challenge to include the newer cyclists into the group that rides longer and faster than they are used to. We have accomplished the inclusion of the new cyclists by splitting the group in some places along the planned route. I lead the group with the newer cyclists and Nevrik, along with one of our stronger cyclists Cheryl, leads the faster group. One of the places we meet to check in along our ride is under the famous Pasadena bridge. We are about one third into the ride when we stop, chat, smile, take pictures, and check in with each other at the bridge. After this point, we meet at one more special spot before we head back to the shop together. Our goal for every ride is to include all women who come to the ride, and challenge them to improve in an encouraging environment.
