RAR Atlanta

Cycling community for femme, trans, women, and non-binary riders of all experience and fitness levels in Atlanta, Georgia. 

We host bike camping trips, open shops, happy hours, rides, programming, education, training, and provide gear and resources for all FTW NB folks interested in building community on bikes.

CORE GROUP

Jen Colestock

Jen (they/them) is a big nerd. After years of using cycling as transportation and wrenching in shops, they got into long, rambling day rides that grew into solo tours and mixed-surface bikepacking races. They love cooking up routes and then forgetting to ride them. You can usually find them taking pictures of cats or sleeping in a bivy and insisting it’s comfortable.

Devin Cowens

Devin (she/her) is a connector, event planner, and advocate for BIPOC folks in cycling. She launched RAR ATL in 2019 as WTF BX ATL and is currently a member of the RAR gravel team. In her free time, she enjoys traveling, bike camping, creating community, and bringing people together. She is the person you want at the party to make sure folks are fed and feeling good. She is a Leo sun, Leo rising and Libra moon who dabbles in Scrabble and puzzles.

Sarah Cruz

Sarah (she/her) moved to Atlanta from the SF Bay Area in 2017 to continue her job of ensuring access to relevant resources AKA librarianship. She’s a mom of two elderly cats and a pitty dog, paints on Sundays, and dreams of one day reaching the highest pass on every continent (so far she has done three). As a long-time bicycle commuter and hiker-at-heart, she hopes to cultivate this sense of freedom and peace that cycling provides her with her community and beyond. She believes that “what we practice at a small scale can reverberate to the largest scale*”, and is excited to make waves and devise new adventures with @rar.atlanta .

She solemnly swears to bring the marshmallows if you solemnly swear to bring the stories.
