Inspired by the first female participation in the Tour de France, group of Women’s Ambassadors of the bicycle-Specialized-promotes challenge in Brazil on the 23rd of July, in Pirapora do Bom Jesus (SP)
Traditionally, in the month of July the Tour de France and the Specialized Ambassadors Alexandra Domingues, Carol Rombauer, Claudia Franco and Renata Mesquita and the Brazil Driver (organizer of the Bike Series), in homage to the first female participation in the world’s largest cycling event, promote the La Course Recon Ride Challenge on the 23rd of July. The cyclists will run 89 km and 1,325 meters of altimetry accumulated by the beautiful and challenging road DOS pilgrims, with a drop and arrival in the city of Pirapora do Bom Jesus (SP), located 61 km from the capital.
“Last year, Specialized launched this World Challenge of the La Course Recon Ride in partnership with Straa. The idea of the event, inspired by the first female participation in the Tour de France (2014), was to motivate the woman to pedal (alone or in group), for leisure or adventure the same mileage, worth a medal in the application. So we decided to assemble a group of women in Brazil to participate in the challenge. In partnership with Ambassador Carolina Rombauer, we organize the pedal in the region of Mogi das Cruzes and to our surprise 75 women pedaled with Us “–Reminds Claudia Franco, founder of the School of the bicycle Ciclofemini. The global challenge gathered 48,109 participants summing up 3,806,706 miles rounds!
In 2017, La Course Recon Ride has professionalized with the organization of the Bike Series, offering all the logistics structure and ensuring the best experience of the metal flasks.
“Fostering cycling among women is a way to help the bike market grow. The world history in cycling shows a masculine majority. We want to take the benefits of sport to other women, show how democratic cycling is. Cycling provides this gathering of people of all ages and all levels, from beginners to those experienced athletes. I myself began practicing cycling with an advanced age (over 40 years) and still evolving in sports, participating in competitions and coaching to promote my health. Cycling is a receptive sport, it does not limit the person by age or technical skill, it is a fairly open sport. This is all very passionate. So our goal is to share all this pleasure we have on the bicycle “adds.
“Cycling is very opportune, especially for those who live in the big cities, for example, I know several women who do not like to go to the academy, exercising in a closed environment, and for that the cycling gives you this freedom, it is a sport that brings physical conditioning outdoors, feeling the wind in the face, beside other people who have the same habit. I find cycling a beautiful sport, moreover, women’s bikes are increasingly delicate, lightweight and fast. I think the bike has everything to do with the feminine profile “comments.
The participation of man is very welcome to the La Course Recon Ride Challenge.
“The goal is to have the presence of men to prestige, encourage and motivate more women to participate. Last year we had some men participating timidly, since the motivation was a feminine challenge. On occasion, we encourage the man to be accompanied by a woman. Now, of course, we’re not going to go against anyone, but we keep motivating men to take the women. The participation of men is very cool, as long as they understand it is a challenge to overcome women and help supporting along the pedal. In the past edition, it was a super cordial climate, in which we noticed a strong admiration of men by women, to see that volume of women pedaling “–Claudia tells.
“A funny passage last year, it was a Lord, by my side, commenting that I had never seen such a woman by pedaling. I replied that I was a colored group because of the uniforms. Then he said, “colorful and fragrant.” I thought it was fun. These are moments of discounting worth “highlight.
“We would like the men to participate in the challenge and take their companions. And even are prepared to push women into harder stretches, because although cycling is an individual sport, there is a lot of collaboration when pedaling in group, “completes Claudia.
Donation: Incentive to children
We know that the bicycle and the sport have the powers to transform lives. And as a way to repay the hospitality of the municipality of Pirapora do Bom Jesus, part of the inscription value will be reverted to the purchase of sporting goods, and will be donated to the children of the small town situated on the shores of the Tietê River with little more than 12000 inhabitants.
Entries are open to participate in the La Course Recon Ride Challenge 2017. The first batch in the value of R $75.00 follows until July 3rd, where the participant is entitled to the kit composed of nappy, identification bracelet, platelet (for bike) and finisher medal (to all who conclude the proof within the established deadline of 6 hours).
The Specialized Ambassadors team divides the principles and values devoted to raising the level of sport and making a world a better place through cycling, in all its form. Their business is to transform, impact and influence people around them by using the bicycle. The Specialized ambassadors are leaders in their communities and can make a difference, thanks to the outdoor lifestyle connected to the health benefits provided by the bike.
