The future is female! Currently only 23% of NSW bike riders are women and we want to help change this through the Heart Foundation Gear Up Girl and its community.
Local Sydney girl and our 2017 Gear Up Girl Ambassador, Sarah Roy, is taking this challenge to a national level. Last week in Adelaide she took the Tour Down Under by storm, as part of the pro Michelton-Scott cycling team.
Go woman go! Her team of six claimed the team’s classification title with team mate, Amanda Spratt making history. Spratt is the first female to win the the Tour Down Under two years in a row. An achievement made sweeter as it came from her team and especially by the efforts of Sarah.
Its about working together and supporting each other even though only one will take the glory. Gear Up Girl Ambassador Sarah took the lead in the criterium races and protected her team mates, saving their legs and ultimately enabling them to claim victory.
Capturing what Gear Up Girl is all about, supporting each other towards a goal. We choose ambassadors who make a different within their local community and help others to get out and enjoy life on two wheels.
Gear Up Girl is proud to have a such an inspirational female cyclist as a previous ambassador. Our event is all about raising women up and working as a team, qualities that Sarah embodies.
We wish Sarah the best of luck in her future races! Follow all Sarah’s achievements here
