Women’s Weekends

Women All Levels

Led by Multi-time World and Pan-Am Champion AND Air Products Program graduate, Kim Geist heads up our Women’s Wednesdays programming, bringing her invaluable racing experience and deep coaching chops to the track each week. 

Inclusivity and Diversity: This program welcomes all women, trans, femme, and other riders.

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!⁠

In this week's podcast, we revealed an ambitious goal of 50% women participation on track by 2025. We call it "50/50 in 50" and a keystone component of this drive is Women's Wednesdays with @kimgeistcoaching. This year, we are offering a "Refresher" course in April and an "Advanced" course in June.⁠
⁠
We will also be announcing the details of a Women's Weekend that will provide another avenue for women to race on track. ⁠

Women’s Weekend!

May 1st and 2nd

Another important step to helping us achieve our goal of reaching 50/50 in 50! We have set a goal of reaching 50% female participation at the track by our 50th anniversary in 2025 and we hope that you will join us in getting there!

With that goal in mind, 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.

To make the weekend even sweeter – we will have Honey Stinger goodies to share including waffles, chews and CrackerBars for snacking along with some great Honey Stinger merchandise for prizes!  Big thanks to one of our mentors – Olympic hopeful and Honey Stinger ambassador Mandy Marquardt!

If you’re interested in participating, we urge you to check out the Women’s Wednesday Refresher course – April 14th through the 28th from 7-9pm to shake off the track cobwebs and get ready to race!

If you’d like to join the fun but haven’t attended Women’s Wednesdays have no fear – you can still participate in Women’s Weekend if you complete the Try the Track class prior to May 1st.

To help you make the leap to racing, we’ll take you through the entire experience of doing your first race – from registration to warm-upfg and all the various race formats. We will answer all of your questions about what to expect on race day. The weekend will feature both mentored practice races and actual races that will set you up for a summer of fun racing on the track.

Please bring your helmet, track bike (if you have one!) gear selections and tools to change them. If you need to use one of our rental bikes, please bring your own pedals.
