Women Who Ride: Dorothy Wong
Building on the success and energy of the Women Cycling Forum at the National Bike Summit, the League and APBP are co-hosting a National Women’s Bicycling Summit on September 13 in Long Beach, CA. To get you geared up about the event — and share the stories of some of the women who will be speakers, presenters and behind-the-scenes organizers — we’re bringing you a weekly Women Who Ride series.
Last week, green business consultant, April Economides, shared her story. This week, another Summit steering committee member: Dorothy Wong, an advocate, race director and elite-pro rider, competing in mountain, road and cyclocross.
Why do I ride? Why not?
I ride because nothing is better than spinning along – energizing – moving. Movement is growth, strength, freedom, independence.
I ride to inspire the future, supporting them to be stronger and smarter so they can make a difference in the world.
I ride so I can always feel like a kid and younger, the older I get.
I ride because I love making friends and learning about the lives of so many people from so many backgrounds with the commonality of the bicycle.
I ride to inspire another woman or girl to say… I can do it too!
I ride so together we can change the world… one bicycle at a time!
