Virginia’s Blue Ridge TWENTY24 is America’s premier women’s cycling team empowering women and young girls to develop and thrive as world leaders. Championing diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging not only in the sport of cycling, but in occupations, cultures, and all aspects of their lives.
In 2018, Virginia’s Blue Ridge (VBR) earned International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA)’s Silver-Level Ride Center designation and subsequently staked a claim as “America’s East Coast Mountain Biking Capital.” This solidified VBR as a mountain biking destination. Now, Visit VBR is investing in a partnership with TWENTY24 in an effort to further enhance our outdoor recreation brand by showcasing the additional disciplines of road and gravel cycling. A comprehensive marketing & PR campaign will support the effort.
