Cinderella Training Series

Saturdays, January 24 - April 4, 2015

The FFBC Cinderella Training Series is a 3 month training program hosted by the Fremont Freewheelers Bicycle Club (FFBC). The purpose of the training is to help women learn to ride a bicycle comfortably in a group setting, and develop the skills necessary to successfully complete a 100K (62 mile) ride. We plan the series to finish just prior to The Valley Spokesmen's Cinderella Classic and Cinderella Challenge Ride on Saturday, April 18, 2015, to enable riders to be prepared for this local, women only event.

Our format for the 2015 is the same as for our 2014 series - we will have a Coaching Series, intended for new riders to help them learn the fundamentals of cycling, and a Conditioning Series, intended for riders who have already learned the fundamentals and who want a fun group to ride with while training for a metric century. If you have participated in the Coaching Series in the past, and have completed the Cinderella Classic 100K ride you are definitely ready for the Conditioning Series! Both series will progress in distance and elevation over the 3 months in preparation to complete metric century distance events, such as the Valley Spokesmen's Cinderella Classic, FFBC's own Primavera Century, or one of the many other Spring century rides in and around the Bay Area.

See the Training Series Descriptions for more information and a registration link.
