Join Rapha and VeloConcepts to celebrate the Women’s 100 on Sunday, September 12th. The Rapha #Womens100 is our annual celebration of women’s cycling. Every year, the event brings together women from all over the world to ride 100 km (62 miles) in one day while creating lasting memories and friendships.
The Women’s 100 ride is no-drop and welcoming to all — trans-gender, LGBTQ+, Femme & Non-binary folks.
The VeloConcepts W100 scenic route starts and ends at our shop and is a socially-paced ride that will depart at 10 am and allow you to explore the rolling roads of Culpeper & Fauquier county. This route, affectionately know as The Kelly’s Ford loop is a local favorite with just the right amount of challenge and beautiful scenery along the way.
Meet Sheila, one of VeloConcepts Shop Ambassadors and ride leader for the Rapha Women’s 100. Sheila lives in Washington, DC and has been riding bikes since 2011. She started racing in 2018 and is passionate about gravel cycling and racing. She recently started the Melanin Base Miles project, which seeks to break down racial barriers in gravel cycling.
Sheila currently rides a Cervelo Caledonia 5 and is excited to be part of the 2021 Rapha Women’s initiative.
When: Sunday, Sept. 12 at 10 am
Where: VeloConcepts Bicycle Fitting Lab & Studio
