Women are the fastest growing group of cyclists so we recently expanded our women's cycling resources section and launching this group. The "Women of Chainlink Chicago" group will have real-time updates with articles, events, clinics, product reviews, races, and lots of bike-related goodness.

What kinds of bike rides would you like to go on with women? Training rides? Social? Brunch/lunch rides? A wine-crawl? All of the above? Let us know so we can start planning.

Bicycling Magazine's, "Great Bikes and Gear for Small Female Cyclists

Great to see there are more bike options recently. I believe Felt also has smaller frame sizes.

"Cait Dooley is without a doubt, one of the coolest girls you’ll ever meet. With a shock of platinum through the fringe of her auburn hair and chunky glasses, she embodies 90’s riot grrrl cool while somehow having a fun-loving, kid at heart nature at the same time. A cyclocross racer, a cancer survivor, a mountain biker, and animal lover, she's also the women’s product manager for GT. "

Cait is awesome. I was lucky enough to see her race at Cx Vegas (in the Wheelers & Dealers Industry race).
