Venus de Miles is a lot of things – 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. Join us August 28, 2011, for our fourth year – it’ll be bigger, better, and more inspiring than ever.
Venus is for all skill levels and features four courses to accommodate any rider novice or seasoned. New for this year we are offering a 100-mile course for those Venus de Miles pioneers who are ready for the next challenge. Choose among the rolling 100-mile ride, the calf-cramping 67-mile ride, the heart-pounding 51-mile ride, or the 33-mile jaunt through the scenic countryside.
The goal at Endurance Sports Travel is to eliminate the hassles and aggravations of your travel to a foreign race. We make every effort to ensure that your trip and race will be enjoyable, successful, and memorable.
