The 19th annual North American Cycle Courier Championship is taking off for the first time in NYC. If that wasn't enough to celebrate, this year over a 100 women are competing — which is 3 times as many as usual! This hardcore bike race, where riders pick up and deliver packages while speeding through the busy streets of NYC, is typically male dominated — and we're thrilled that so many women are participating this year.
This extreme event begins tomorrow, October 6th. It isn't too late to sign up (it's free for women!). If you're not up for cycling, come watch these badass cyclists compete for the championship.
