Don't forget to sign up for the Mariposa Women's Stage Race coming up May 11-13!

This is the same race as the Kern County Women's Stage Race but it has been moved. The overall format is the same. But it is much closer than it was before. And much cooler! The average high in Mariposa for the month of May is 78!
So if you've done Kern before but it was too far to go or too hot, come on back and try it again!
If you've never raced Kern, give it a try! The racing is hard, but the vibe is awesome! Prizes are cash, plus everyone in the past has always received a shirt (usually nicer than the average bike race t-shirt) for finishing. And there are special awards hand-made by Robert Leibold.
This is a unique race that we are lucky to have here in Norcal. I don't know of any other event for women that is like it across the country. There are categories for everyone--separate 1/2, 3s, 4s, 35+, 45+, and 55+.
We need your support for this race both to make it keep happening, but also to make the racing challenging and fun!
See you there!
