Together with the Women's Cycling Challenge, we have created a weekend not only of amazing racing opportunities for women, but also a weekend full of activities... just for you!

Here is a link to the website: www.CenCalCycling.com

** we invite all of you to bring your trainers to warm-up together zone of the lounge. We will have a space just for you!
** we invite all of you to hang out in the Women's Cycling lounge, meet other ladies, talk about the racing and enjoy some snacks and beverages too!
** we will have a women's "boutique" and invite you to showcase some of your women-centric sponsors... contact Dot@SoCalCross if you want to include your sponsors.

Women's Activity Highlights:

3. 11am - Women 3 & 4 Race Debrief and Refuel Session at Women's Lounge

In the end, we are all doing amazing things in cycling - collectively we can do even more! NRC budgets are getting more difficult to promote and races are event cutting women's events, we need to work together to support our passion! Don't forget, the Central Coast Cycling Classic is offering EQUAL prize money in the Pro 1/2/3 criterium... and of course we will be crowning three SCNCA district criterium champions (Elite 1/2.3.4) throughout the day! It's time to par-tay!!!

If you want to get involved to support or have any other fun ideas, activities for the weekend extravaganza, please let us know! We'd love your support!
