Ladies, who’s got mad cycling skills?

Athleta Esprit de She, Austin’s only all-women cycling tour, is returning on Sept. 13, and I’ve got a free entry to give away. (Read on!)

Cyclists can choose from three different distances - 30 miles, 18 miles or 14 miles - or even participate by pedaling a stationary bike next to the pool. The event, part of a national series, is open to cyclists of all ability levels, from beginners to seasoned pros.

The rides will depart Life Time Fitness Austin South, 7101 South Loop 1 (Mopac), starting at 7:30 a.m. All distances are untimed and take riders along popular South Austin cycling routes.

A post-ride, pool-side celebration complete with drinks, healthy fare and complimentary massages, mini manicures and hair braiding will follow. Registered participants also get a cycling jersey.

The event is designed to build and strengthen the city’s community of female cyclists.

To help cyclists prepare, Life Time will host an Athleta Esprit de She Kick-Off Event and free cycling clinic Aug. 9 in conjuntion with Bicycle Sport Shop. The event benefits Girls on the Run – Austin. For more information go to

And if you want the free entry, post below and tell me why you deserve it. Best answer wins.
