We have many opportunities for women to get on track no matter their experience. ⁠
⁠
Racing Experience on Track? Join Women's Weekend May 1-2 for one-on-one coaching by World Champion Kim Geist. Schwag and prized from @honeystinger will be available, too!⁠
⁠
You can also enter Try the Track 2 to familiarize yourself with basic track races and rules. This program is meant to bridge the gap between track riding ability and an athlete’s first track race. ⁠
⁠
No track experience? Try the Track 1 is your ticket. You only need to know how to ride a bike and we'll take care of the rest. ⁠

Women's Weekend with @kimgeistcoaching is May 1-2 for women interested in racing on the velodrome!⁠
⁠
As part of our #5050in50 initiative, we have created many paths to participating in this weekend:⁠
- If you already have track experience: Register now! ⁠
- If you need track experience, we have a few dates available now. Women's Refresher will get you familiar with the fixed gear on the banked oval. If that program doesn't suit your schedule, consider Try the Track 1.⁠

If you're a woman looking for racing on track with structured feedback from a World Champion, Women's Weekend on May 1st is your weekend. ⁠
⁠
Women’s Weekend is designed to encourage participants with some prior track experience (Women’s Wednesdays, Women’s Wednesday Refresher, Try the Track, or prior racing experience) to dip their toes into racing in a fun, low-stress environment designed to answer all of your questions BEFORE you sign up to race. It’s a perfect opportunity to hone the skills learned in Women’s Wednesdays and/or Try the Track programs but with a focus on getting you to your first race start (OR jumping back into racing after a year with no mass start racing!) all while having fun in a supportive group setting. ⁠
⁠
If you’re interested in participating, we urge you to check out the Women’s Wednesday Refresher course – April 14th through the 28th from 7-9 pm to shake off the track cobwebs and get ready to race!⁠
