The Fort Follies continue to support and cultivate female/female identifying cyclists in Northern Colorado. For 2019 the roster tops out at 87 riders. Their roster, sponsor list, social media links and press release are below.
The Fort Follies are a group that seeks to empower women and women-identifying individuals in the Fort Collins area to be active and impactful members of our cycling community through riding, racing, and philanthropy. We strongly believe in a positive, supportive, and inclusive team, suited for women and women-identifying individuals of all abilities and disciplines.
The Fort Follies women’s cycling club was founded in fall of 2012 when a domestic elite rider decided to ask her community if there was interest in a women’s program to grow the sport and create community locally. Not only was the response overwhelmingly positive, but so many women and even companies wanted to get involved in leadership from the get-go.
Over the past few years, the Fort Follies has grown to 90 members and counting while developing an incredible leadership team of ambitious women with big dreams. Our team members have represented the Fort Follies in races and events throughout Colorado. This season, we hope to continue offering free registration to grassroots races to help our team members get involved and try out racing in a non-threatening environment.
