Forward/relay this to whoever you think would be good for this. If someone who has access to the Women's forum can post this there as well, I would appreciate it. I do know of friends who are applying but the more people from Los Angeles applying the better!

Trek Women is not a single voice. It's a community of voices united by a single passion: riding bikes. That's why a little over a year ago we invited five Women Who Ride to share their stories by blogging their life, the things that matter to them, and of course, how a bicycle is interconnected to it all. Now it's time to select five new Women Who Ride to represent the Trek Women community. As one of the Women Who Ride, you'll have fun, you'll inspire, and you'll learn. And who knows, the life you change just might be your own.
