Girls Inc. Liv Bike Team

We could not be more proud of the strong, smart and bold members of our organization’s first-ever bike team. The Girls Inc.-Liv Bike Team is generously sponsored and supported by our friends at Plaine and Son, with professional coaching and guidance from Jessica Mitchell of Powerhouse Athletics.

On Sunday, June 5th, six girls in grades 5-10, from diverse backgrounds and different schools in Schenectady County, showed the world exactly the kind of promise and potential our youth have! The team rode the 10-mile portion of the Tour de Cure to fight diabetes and finished between 35-50 minutes- at times during the rain and among thousands of other cyclists while pushing their own personal and physical limits.

We thank all of our families and fans that came out toride with us, share in the excitement and support the girls in their first-ever ride event. As if the day could not get better, we ended things on a really high note with a special cotton-candy and popcorn-filled lunch at Circus Cafe in Saratoga. Great job, girls!
