Grab your bike and join women from across the nation for Venus de Miles, Illinois’ first all-women’s road ride on July 29, 2012.
Venus de Miles is a lot of things – Illinois’ first all-women’s road ride, a celebration of sisterhood, support for Greenhouse Scholars, and crazy fun – but one thing it’s not is a race. So, don’t be afraid to walk your bike up that hill, stop to listen to a band, and, most importantly, enjoy yourself. Venus de Miles participants represent different cycling abilities, age groups, and home cities. But they all have one thing in common – an indescribable collective experience that thousands of women have become fiercely passionate about. You'll also support Greenhouse Scholars, which provides comprehensive personal and financial support to high-performing, under-resourced college students. Using a unique Whole Person© approach, which offers intellectual, academic, professional, and financial support, we are cultivating the next generation of community leaders. The day our Scholars leave college, they’ll be prepared to succeed in their professional endeavors and make significant contributions in their communities.
