Any way to promote women's cycling
« on: January 07, 2012, 10:14:48 am »
Hi,

I found this and thought it was a good idea.  Is there any way the UND Cycling club could promote women's cycling more?  http://www.bicycleretailer.com/post-311/guest-editorial-new-year-new-challenge

All about the snowball potential. Get a couple active females (2-3) and more will be interested. And by active I mean actually racing, etc.

Female cyclist Megan Kelly from University of Minnesota posted a link and some info on the club Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/UND-Cycling-Club/255361261439

Quote from: Megan Kelly
Glad you asked! Here's a link containing some info from the Atlantic CCC women's coordinator about what people can do to recruit more women. http://groups.google.com/group/acc-collegiate-cycling/browse_thread/thread/c80f879b3f592175?hl=en&pli=1

She discusses Intro clinics - we're working out the details, but we are going to have intro clinics in the NCCCC this year, so hopefully that's something you can "sell" to a potential new teammate. We're also going to be "emphatically suggesting" that all the race directors offer a women's C field for both the crit and road race - so, they won't have to race the Men D's this year.

If you come up with other ideas I'd love to hear them, and if there's anything we can do on a conference level to help/support you recruit more women and promote women's cycling, please let me know!

Here's another great post from a local (well, Winnipeg) female rider: http://winnipegcyclechick.com/?p=4536

Also, if you are interested in racing (today or someday), talk to Gina on the UND Cycling Team.

To be clear, we don't care if women race or not, we all just like more people on bikes, and 50% of the population seems to be female, so...
