Join Ayesha McGowan to “Do Better Together” in 2017

Ayesha McGowan is on a mission to become the first female African-American professional road cyclist. Now, she invites you to join her virtual ride series, Do Better Together, to set goals and train alongside her in 2017.

The ride series kicks off in February, and participants have a 10-day window each month to complete their goal. Rides are tracked via Strava, where participants can use the “Do Better Together” group to encourage and support each other.

Anyone who participates in at least 4 of the 6 rides is also eligible to win a Cannondale bike.
