Pull Quote (200 Character Max): 
“We saw an opportunity to use cycling to empower young girls and women to seek their potential in all aspects of life.” * Michelle Faurot, Co-Founder, Bike Like A Girl
Story Summary (100 Character Max): 
Bike riding has the ability to transform an individual – enhancing quality of life, building confidence and improving well-being. That’s the inspiration behind Bike Like a Girl and their girls’ cycling camps.

In 2014, when Reno resident Michelle Faurot decided to form an all-woman cycling team to compete in the storied Race Across America (RAAM), she knew she had her work cut out for her. It wasn’t just the eight months of intensive training or the extensive logistics required to get eight cyclists 3,004 miles across the country that challenged her. The team needed a cause they could believe in – beyond chasing a new women’s team record (which, by the way, they earned).

Pull Quote (200 Character Max): 
“Part of our business plan is to grow with our community. We’re nothing without our community, and we’re only as strong as our community.” * Trish Miraglia
Story Summary (100 Character Max): 
When news of the fire and its impact reached the owners of Orange Pedal Cycling in Reno, they began a Camp Fire Donation Drive, open to neighbors, cycling enthusiasts and anyone with a desire to help.

Trish and Stefano Miraglia take their commitment to community as seriously as they take their espresso. Inside their bike shop – Orange Pedal Cycling, located in a strip mall at the corner of Booth and California streets – they’ve built a coffee shop equipped with a La Spaziale espresso machine where they serve LavAzza Italian coffee and select local roasters. The storefront was never intended to be a traditional bike shop, but rather a neighborhood spot to connect with others – over cycling and a good cup of coffee.
