Cinderella Training Series

Saturdays, January 23 - April 2, 2016

The FFBC Cinderella Training Series is an 11 week training program hosted by the Fremont Freewheelers Bicycle Club (FFBC). The purpose of the training is to help women learn to cycle 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 Challenge Ride on Saturday, April 9, 2016, to enable riders to be prepared for this local, women only event.

Our format for the 2016 is the same as for our 2015 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 course of the training in preparation to complete metric century distance events, such as the Valley Spokesmen's Cinderella Classic and Challenge, FFBC's own Primavera Century, or one of the many other Spring century rides in and around the Bay Area.

If you have questions please take a look at the FAQ page.

See the Training Series Descriptions for more detailed information about the two series. Registration for the Coaching Series is now open on!

It's all about the gear!

For 2016 we will have all new clothing. Pictures of Marcella's gorgeous jersey, vest and arm warmers are below. The cost for the jersey is a bargain basement $35 for those participating in the Coaching series and $55 for other FFBC club members (still a bargain!). The vest is $55 and the arm warmers are $25. Please see the FAQ page for order details.
