Anna Affias earns Women’s ‘STKD’ for Crit Racing


Women have come a long way in cycling. But they still have a long way to go.

Meet cyclist and inclusion activist Anna Affias, that breaks down barriers for women.

“After noticing how few women competed in criterium racing, Anna created the STKD (stoked) Racing Squad, a team that champions inclusivity and empowers women to challenge the status quo and push the norms of cycling industry,” Schwinn explained.

Affias leads the STKD Racing Squad, a Chicago-based Category 3 racing team. Meet the whole team and learn more here.

What better time to celebrate women in cycling than International Women’s Day?
