Resources for Women at the Track
A new generation of American women has ascended to the top ranks of cycling.
Each year there are several events designed to welcome and introduce women to track cycling. Throughout our regular TNR and FNR racing season there are dedicated nights for women of all levels certified to ride on the San Diego Velodrome. Women-inclusive categories foster inclusiveness and encourage riders to race who would otherwise be less motivated by the open categories.
If you are interested in racing but are not yet Race Certified, please check out our Introductory Class.
Women's Practice Sessions
Please join us for our monthly free women's training session. First Sunday of the month, please check the calendar, dates subject to change. We begin each session with a paceline warm up, move on to drills, and then end with a practice race. All women who are safety certified are invited to join for this fun, community-building workout. If you are not yet safety certified, please join us for our Try the Track class beforehand.
If you have questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org
