Bay Area Women's Cycling (BAWC) has announced its seventh annual women's and girls' road cycling clinic to be held on Saturday and Sunday, March 24 and 25. The Clinic is for women and girls who want to learn how to improve their bike handling skills, to learn how to start road racing, or to improve their racing strategy. It is for beginner and intermediate racers, triathletes, endurance riders, and cycling enthusiasts.
The weekend will offer skills drills and classroom instruction that include basic bike handling skills, training, sports psychology, and racing skills/strategy, taught by former Cyclingnews diarist, Nicole Freedman. Freedman is a former professional cyclist who was a two-time U.S. National Champion and member of the US Olympic Road Team.
"We are excited about our 2007 event," said Brooke Kuhn, president of BAWC. "We have seen a tremendous increase in the number of female cyclists in the last few years. This event should be our best yet!"
The clinic will be held at Lucie Stern Community Center, 1305 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto, in the Fireside Room, and runs from 9:00am to 5:00pm both days; registration and refreshments are from 8:00-9:00am. For more information visit http://www.bawcycling.com/clinic.html
