A new organization called South East Women's (SEW) Cycling has formed to support the racing of women by women at all levels. SEW is looking to grow women's cycling by providing women the opportunity to race multiple events, earning points and prizes; reduce barriers to beginner women by providing separate category 3/4 races where they can learn and put into practice race tactics and pack skills; provide quality racing for advanced women in a competitive environment by providing separate category 1/2/3 races; and create a sustainable series where women's racing is profitable.

The new SEW series will promote women's racing in the South Eastern US and is a compilation of existing races, but has no exclusive affiliation with an promoter, event or racing series.
