Peanut Butter & Co. Human Zoom is proud to represent its hometown of Philadelphia at the Parx Casino Philly Cycling Classic on June 2, 2013. The “most local” women’s team in Philadelphia’s premiere cycling race, Peanut Butter & Co. Human Zoom is a regional team comprised of 27 women and 3 men who compete in a number of disciplines, including road, mountain, and cyclocross. The team is recognized by USA Cycling and the Pennsylvania Cycling Association.

Peanut Butter & Co. Human Zoom will be represented by six of its members, two of which live within walking distance of the 2013 start/finish line: Andrea Wagner, Beth Bonilla, Julia Lonchar, Kristine Church, Patty Buerkle, and Victoria Hanks. All of the women on the team balance their training and racing with full-time careers. For example, Bonilla is a mechanical engineer for the United States Navy, Church is a German teacher at Ridley High School in Folsom, and Hanks is the Program Director of the Cadence Cycling Foundation (CCF), a nonprofit youth development organization.

The team is sponsored by Philadelphia-based Human Zoom Bikes & Boards and New York-based Peanut Butter & Co. Other sponsors include JL Velo, Cannondale, Oakley, SRAM, Bontrager and Bergey’s Ford. Both Human Zoom and JL Velo have stores on Main Street in Manayunk.

The Parx Casino Cycling Classic, formerly known as the Philadelphia International Championship, launched in 1985 and has been described as “America’s top international cycling classic.”
