Elevated Sports Performance/Bend Broadband Cycling Team to Co-Sponsor Movie Night at McMenamins March 20th

As part of COTA's efforts to raise funds and awareness for the Central Oregon Trail Alliance, they frequently present Movie Night's at McMenamins here in Bend, OR.

On March 20, Pine Mountain Sports and the Elevated Sports Performance/BendBroadband Team will be sponsoring the film "Half the Road", a documentary about the passion, pitfalls, and power of women's professional cycling.  The film will air at 9pm in the Old St. Francis School Theater in McMenamins.  The cost to get in is $5, a very non-expensive price to pay to support a great cause.

The Elevated Sports Performance/BendBroadband Team will be in attendance during the film for a"meet and greet", so stop by and meet the only all-women's mountain bike team in Central Oregon.  There are several members of the team with high hopes of turning professional within a year or two.

I started the Elevated Sports Performance Women's Mountain Bike Team to bring more awareness to women's cycling and try to bridge the gap of equality between men's and women's cycling.

Look for the team to be hitting the local races starting in April.
