OWL of Fame

The OWL of Fame celebrates inspirational women cyclists aged 55 and over, affectionately known as OWLs Older Women in Lycra. Women who are changing societal messages on aging . . . one ride at a time!

Defying societal norms...
one pedal stroke at a time

In a world dominated by youth, a remarkable group of women cyclists aged 55 and above, defy societal norms. With each race or ride they participate in on Zwift, they shatter preconceived notions and inspire countless women to keep pedaling.

Aging and invisibility seem to go hand in hand.

Studies reveal that a whopping 70% of women feel invisible as they get older, starting at around 52. This invisibility is further compounded by the fact that 64% of women feel they’re less visible than men. These statistics are a reflection of our society’s obsession with youth and its penchant for being ageist and sexist.

The mission of The OWL of Fame, is to take every opportunity to spread the idea that visibility, agency, and joy is possible – and erasure is not inevitable.

By proudly having our ages visible when we ride on Zwift, we are inspiring the next generation of riders.

And sending a clear message: you’re #NeverTooOld

Zwift Team OWL Kit

“My goal in designing the OWL Kit, was to make a bold statement”, said elaine — OWL.BiKe’s co-founder. “The vibrant hues of the OWL against the solid black proclaim: We are here. We are not invisible!”

The kit embodies the unyielding spirit, and is a step forward in reclaiming a sense of agency. 

In recognition of the women who refuse to be invisible, women who proudly display their age visibly on Zwift, OWL of Fame inductees receive the Team OWL Zwift in-game kit.

We are not invisible. Be seen!

The older a woman gets, the more invisible you become.
