It’s been an extraordinary inaugural season for Chicago Women’s Elite Cycling.
In addition to racing in 24 events and capturing 6 professional podium finishes, CWEC hosted 7 rider clinics with 145 participants including junior, beginner, intermediate, and professional women cyclists. Through our efforts, we’re deepening and growing Chicago women’s cycling with elite racing opportunities, development clinics, mentorship programs, open discussion forums, and much more.
