Living and riding in San Francisco, I've had the pleasure of meeting many great cyclists. Some are fast, others ride with style & there are those who choose to affect the very culture that inspires them. is a group of female cyclists in SF who have come together with a common interest to, "Commemorate the city’s amazing ability to make lasting impressions on its natives, especially its ability to influence people to form & participate in the growth of subcultures and specifically that of track biking" says co-found & rider Kat Tourtelot. As is with many sports, cycling has long been a male-dominated activity, but these ladies are aiming to make a name for themselves & all women alike. For the 2011 Bicycle Film Festival, Fast Co. produced a short film showcasing their speed & talent on the streets of San Francisco.
Over the next year Fast Co. hopes to inspire female cyclists from all over through organized women's rides, races and with a feature-length film. We love what these ladies are doing for the cycling scene and can't wait to see what they have in-store for us.
Thanks for the heads up Beaver!
