Mission Statement

The Fort Follies are a group that seeks to empower women* 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 of all abilities and disciplines.

*The Follies are for all women, regardless of the sex they were identified as at birth.

Press Release

This year sees a change in leadership for the Fort Follies- Lauren Nagle is taking over from Natalie Santelli. While Lauren has some big shoes to fill, the team is embracing this change so that Natalie can have time to focus on more important things in her life, like family.

There are other changes happening with the Follies, too. We have updated our website, including making our language be more inclusive. We have developed a scholarship program that aims at overcoming the financial barriers the sport of cycling often has. We are also talking about body inclusivity and what we can do to tell the world that all bodies are cycling bodies. As part of that we have made wearing our kit optional, and have switched our kit design refresh to be every other year to consume less. This year’s kits will be for the 2021-2022 seasons, and while you will see some of us riding around in the new design, you will also see us wearing all the previous kit designs, too.

We are hopeful that 2021 will see a return of our weekly group rides: Wednesday Night Weepeats (hill repeats ad nauseam) and Sunday Funday (rides that build in length and difficulty as the warm seasons progress). We have several riders who have races on their calendar, even more who enjoy riding locally on singletrack, gravel, and pavement. We also have several year-round bike commuters on the team, holding down the nuts and bolts sector of being a cyclist. If you see us out riding be sure to say hi!

We are also hopeful to do several community oriented events, so even if you are not part of the Follies you can still get in on the fun…stay tuned!

The Fort Follies Cycling Team is one spoke of the NoCo Cycling Project (NCCP), a 501c3 organization.
