Where to Shop

Pro-Woman Companies

I like to support companies that promote women’s cycling (and/or women’s equality in cycling), and avoid companies that don’t. Simple. So here’s my list of said companies:

Stores

lululemon: Store for women’s (and men’s) athletic products (mostly for running & yoga, though)

Online Companies

Terry: Online store for women’s cycling products (including bikes)

Team Estrogen: Online store for women’s athletic products

Monkeysee: Owned by a woman, Denise the “Chief Chimp” and offers products to improve cyclist (adults and children) safety (r.g. reflective material)

SheilaMoon: Owned by a woman (Sheila Moon) and offers women’s cycling apparel

Cycling Manufacturers

Specialized: bike and gear manufacturing company

  • Sponsor women’s cycling (road) team
    • Original women’s team (HTC-Highroad) went under, so Specialized and lululemon (clothing company) stepped in to be the title sponsors
  • Have women on their mountain biking team
  • Have women’s line of products

Trek: bike and gear manufacturing company

  • Have women’s line of products, and starting to make products that do not focus solely on stereotypical feminine ideas (like flowers, pink, etc)
  • Sponsor woman cyclocross racer (Katie Compton)

Food & Drink

Clif Bar & Company: Co-owned by a woman (Kit Crawford)

Other

G-Form LLC: athletic gear and electronics accessories

  • Contributed money to bridge the gap between men’s and women’s prizes for Cyclocross Event

    • No problem! And I know! Pink or floral? Gag. I mean, I actually do like the color pink but some variety would be nice!!!

      There are a few more that I need to add so keep checking back often!

  1. My friends in retail design and manufacture their own cycling clothing; they include Nan, owner of bspoketailor.com, Sheila of sheilamoon.com, . . also, Trek sponsors “Dirt Series” mountain bike camps for women. The coaches are all current or ex female pro-athletes, mainly from the B.C. area, but some are from the states they offer camps in. The companies that work with Dirt Series are Sugoi and Bell Sports. 🙂
