Swift Industries looking for contributions to their women-focused Tough & Tender project

Basically, if you are a woman and bikes are a big part of your life, submit a short essay and photo to Swift for a chance to share your story and maybe get a sweet deal one a locally-crafted bag while you’re at it.
