Anna Affias is a criterium specialist and founder of the STKD Racing Squad, an organization dedicated to empowering young women and challenging the sport’s status quo.

But the STKD team reaches beyond gender and racing to encompass inclusivity and equality of everyone. In fact, the foundation has experienced so much mission success that USA Cycling named it the Club of the Year in the women’s category.

So, in celebration of International Women’s Day, Schwinn has released “Anna”, the third installment to its “I Am A Cyclist” series. Through the short film, Schwinn charts Affias’s course to a brighter, stronger, more equitable cycling culture. “My definition of a cyclist is really anybody who enjoys being on two wheels,” Affias says. “I think it falls on our whole community to open our arms and bring people into this thing we love so much.”

Take a look at “Anna” below (runtime: 4 minutes).
