Here's a link that talks about Gladys bikes. It's an interesting bike store in Portland OR, that caters to women first, then men.
When I first approached Freddy about sponsoring Spoke n'Hot his immediate reaction was Yes. He didn't ask how much, didn't ask for anything at all, he just wanted to help. Our entire relationship was, and is still, based on a handshake.
Dutch Cycle is not women oriented, men oriented or little green men oriented. They are cyclist oriented, they put the rider first above all other considerations.
And that's why Dutch Cycle is our sponsor.
I tend to be the noisy one, Theresa and the Ride Leaders are the real story.
