Your Feedback Wanted: What Makes a Great Women’s Cycling Team?

18 Flares 18 Flares ×

Over the years I have been lucky enough to be embraced, grow with and learn from some great women’s groups. The first that comes to mind is Artemis Racing out of the Mid-Atlantic and then there are the Dirt Diva’s in Charlotte, NC.

As I mentioned earlier this week, one of my goals over the next year is to help my Team Cycleton build and grow a women’s team. As I build the groundwork and before I put out a call for applicants for the team I want to hear from you.

What Makes a Great Women’s Cycling Team?

The specific word I want to point out in the above question is TEAM. While there will be some club aspect, social events and rides, it is also a large goal of mine to help develop female racing. This includes having like minded goals, training rides or events and education on all aspects of bike riding/racing.

So sound off, what have you seen work in making a successful women’s cycling team that helps develop women into strong riders and racers?

  1. Sol Cal Ladies team. Just formed in Oct 2013 has grown to 50+ women. Started with a need for a team that was about women, not just elite, anyone that would like to try racing. We have got MTBrs that never dreamed of racing but they are so GOOD! The kit and lots of friends started it all. Please look us up! http://çMore elite women are joining our team but I’m happy with all the women who are first timers!!
