Time to Join em:pwr cycling

35 Flares 35 Flares ×

It’s time to make this official.  We’ve been talking about em:pwr cycling for the past month, we’ve secured some sweet sponsors and its ready to launch!  Please read below for all the perks of joining, or the “elevator pitch.”   Our initial order is closed, but we’ll be doing a reorder ever 3-4 months depending on needs. Please email me girly@bikeshopgirl.com if you want to be on the to order list!

em:pwr cycling is in session

The Basics :

em:pwr cycling is a group/team focused around motivating and EMPOWERING yourself and others on bikes.   From the beginner to the CAT1 racer, you’ll have a home with us.  Also, we don’t have to be your “race team” but a large group of us are racers and will be all over the circuit in the United States. (From old fat guys, to junior mountain bikers and of course a boat load of chicks kicking ass!)

The Benefits :

We are a USAC licensed team (Club #13664).  As cool as it sounds, it more adds insurance on our end, another reason to have a few kick ass races this season and if you happen to race one of those races that like to charge you “unattached fee’s”  you won’t have to any longer!  If you’ve already gotten your license for the year, let us know and we can contact our USA Cycling rep to have you added to the team and a new license sent out.

An Email List. This is one of my favorite parts of this group.   We are forming a Google Group/List for everyone to email between themselves.   No, we aren’t doing a forum as they can be a pain in the arse for upkeep.   The idea for the group is this : are you looking for a friend to ride with or do you want to buy clipless pedals and would like to have an idea before walking into a store, do you need motivation before your first group ride, or did you just CAT up and worried about turn 3 in that next crit?   Well that is what we are here for.  We will not only be ringing a cowbell at the races for you, but a virtual one on this Google List for whenever you need!   Everyone is encouraged to participate and if you like, you can trim down your interactions with the group from daily to weekly (or to receive them whenever someone emails.)

Extra Things from Our Sponsors.

The first 10 people to sign up get a Lazer Genesis helmet in team colors for free (worth $130)
Pro-deal from Lazer on all other helmets through a Lazer Retailer
A bag of Kinetic Koffee
Swag & Water Bottles from Twin Six

Testing Sweet Product. Through out the year as Bike Shop Girl gets product to test.  If you fit the bill, we would like to include you in the testing.  (Example, we get fenders and you live in a rainy area, or a baby helmet to test and you have a cute 2 year old!)

  1. Hey,

    Can I join? It’s a bit of a stretch I live in the Uk in Stamford.
    Everything your doing has completely inspired me.

    I love to ride and want to try and get as many girls and women on bikes to. Have no idea how I’m going to achieve this but I’m starting with getting a coaching qualification as soon as I can get a break from my job in the armed forces.
    I would happily race and train in your club kit over here because it sends all the right messages.

    Any chance of going international ?

    • Amanda,

      I would love to get you involved!!! We are doing a re-order in the next month. I think if we can figure out shipping and such it should be no problem at all!!
