Strong Women Quotes
The goal of our program is more than just getting more girls our on bikes, it is to instill a sense of confidence that they can carry with them throughout their lives. Our mentors are the main driving force behind this, but there are some incredible women out there with a lot to say about confidence. Here are a few of our favorite strong women quotes.
