Inequality still exists in cycling. Female pros often are paid less, receive less coverage, and have less opportunity to race.

In 2007, 5-Time US National Champion and Olympic Bronze Medalist, Georgia Gould raised her hand on these inequalities and thousands stood with her via their signatures on a petition delivered to the UCI.

Cycling needs more Georgias. We need to foster environments where everyone has a place. Georgia Gould is a role model indeed, but it takes more than one voice. It takes more women riding, more women supporting, more media highlighting, and more brands endorsing.
