10th Anniversary Velo Girls Kit from Pactimo!

I'm just so excited about our new partnership with Pactimo!  I've been riding in Pactimo clothes for the past couple of months and they are by far the BEST cycling clothes I've worn.  I'm even more excited to unveil our special 10th anniversary kit, designed by Team Velo Girls member Denise Soultanian.  In honor of our 10th year, we're offering a full line of clothing, including long sleeve, sleeveless, short sleeve and mountain bike jerseys as well as bibs, shorts, arm warmers, vests, and gloves.  Here's a little sampling of the items you can order (click to enlarge).

Please note, if you already ordered a jersey with your membership, you DON'T need to order again -- I've already taken care of it for you.

In order to receive everything in time for Cinderella, we've got a very short ordering window.  Orders will close at 10:00am on Monday, February 13th.  Don't miss out on this opportunity to get one of the coolest-looking kits for women on the road today!

To order, go directly to the Pactimo Store:

dream it, do it

Have you ever dreamed of changing your life and re-defining your career?  Check out this great video  from ABC7 about Velo Girls sponsor Gina Centoni of Alioto Centoni Restoration + Development and how she transitioned from the board room to a hard hat.  While this might not seem a traditional career path (especially for a woman), Gina found that her management and analytical skills enhanced her business partnership and has been key in her success in a new industry.

Thanks for your support Gina + Mike!  We're thrilled to welcome you to our family of sponsors for 2012.
