Chicago Women's Elite Cycling is very excited to announce that we have been selected to receive a financial grant from athleteReg.
The 2017 athleteReg grant recipients are teams or organizations who focus on endurance sports while concentrating on both athletic and personal development. CWEC's focus on individual and team development takes our racers to training camp in Asheville NC from April 13-19th. This year we are inviting 1 Chicagoland category 3 woman to join our team for the week-long training experience. Details and the rider application can be found here: http://www.chicagowomenselite.com/blog/
We look forward to utilizing the athleteReg grant to assist us with our core mission of supporting and developing female cyclists in Chicagoland. Come out to see our team in action at one of our races this year. The 2017 calendar can be found here: http://www.chicagowomenselite.com/events/?view=calendar&month=March-2017
