Team Evergreen to present the Beti Bike Bash in 2020
January 28, 2020
EVERGREEN, CO, January 29, 2020 — Team Evergreen Cycling and Beti Bus Productions are teaming up for the 11th annual Beti Bike Bash on May 31, 2020 in Lakewood, Colorado. The largest women’s mountain bike event in the world, the Beti Bike Bash prides itself on bringing together the cycling community in a unique and supportive environment, including categories such as “7 and Unders”, Juniors, “Never-Ever’s”, “New Moms”, all the way up to the seasoned professionals.
“The Beti Bike Bash is an event every girl and woman on the front range should make an effort to get to, either to race or simply to have a great time cheering and supporting friends and family,” said Katie Compton, professional bike racer and 15-time National Cyclocross Champion. “The race is held on an inviting course that suits all abilities of riders and makes for a fun race. Whether it’s your first mountain bike race ever or you’re a seasoned veteran, you’ll end the day with a smile on your face and happy you spent the day with some great women and girls.”
As the largest cycling club in Colorado, Team Evergreen is no stranger to the cycling community and event promotion. In addition to the 2020 Beti Bike Bash, their popular cycling events include The Triple Bypass Ride and the Bob Cook Memorial / Mt. Evans Hill Climb — all proceeds of which are donated to a variety of charitable organizations (over 3 million dollars to date).
“We’re thrilled to partner with Team Evergreen to continue offering the annual Beti Bike Bash,” said Amy Thomas, co-founder and BBB Race Director. “Going into our 11th year, we were up against several setbacks and a bleak future with most of our industry partners pulling out, despite soaring participation in women’s mountain biking. With this partnership and the continued support from Yeti Cycles, our tried and true continual sponsor, we will be able to bring over 400 women and girls together again on May 31, 2020.”
Jen Barbour, Executive Director of Team Evergreen added, “We’re so excited to bring the Beti Bike Bash into our line of events. We see a big and bright future – not just for the event itself, but for all the women who continue to come out year after year to grow the sport.”
In addition to the race itself, the 2020 Beti Bike Bash also offers several ancillary events for the weekend. On Saturday, May 30, the VIDA MTB Series will host a race-specific clinic, designed to help participants with principles such as body positioning, race etiquette, and technique under the guidance of VIDA’s highly qualified and friendly coaches.
For the younger crowd, the legendary Little Bellas will be onsite both days, to offer a one- or two-day bike camp designed to get young girls hooked on the sport.
“Over the last ten years, the Little Bellas and Beti Bike Bash have had an amazing partnership to get more girls on bike bikes and having fun from ages 8 and up,” said Sabra Davison, co-owner of Little Bellas. “We have worked together to make sure Colorado has a fun, inviting race and recreational cycling event for any type of woman or girl. The growth of our Little Bellas camp has been incredible over the course of this partnership and we are thrilled to be able to continue working with Team Evergreen at the Beti Bike Bash. We couldn’t hold this event camp without them!”
Registration for the 2020 Beti Bike Bash and its ancillary events will open on Thursday, Feb. 6. Yeti Cycles will host a kick-off party on Feb 13th with a discount available that evening. In true Team Evergreen fashion, all proceeds from the event will go to local non-profits, like the Little Bellas. For more information visit www.betibikebash.com.
