Thank you for participating in our 2013 Women’s Cycling Clinic. We covered a lot of information and practiced group riding. I hope that you now feel confident enough to join group rides in your neighborhood and with us this summer.
Learning is a continual process. We will continue to provide you with valuable material about cycling on our website. Check in with us regularly or sign up for our weekly email. Here are additional resources:
- Training and Nutrition – Craig Strong with Precision Multisport
- Staying Injury Free – Dr Jon Sebby from Chicago Chiropractic & Sport Medicine
We will be having women’s rides leaving Wilmette on Tuesdays at 9:30am and from Highland Park on Wednesdays at 6:30pm. We also have a no-drop group ride leaving Wilmette on Saturdays at 7:00am.

I would also like to thank our instructors who gave their time to make this day possible: Francine Haas, Chris Raymo, Lynn Rivier, Nancy Heymann, Al Weigel, Catherine Watkins and Sheila Wilson. Thank you also to Kathy Corbett, who made the tacos, and Brandon Olson and Beccy Sullivan, who held down the fort.
Ride safely and defensively and have a great summer.

The participants of our second annual Women’s Cycling Clinic enjoyed beautiful weather on Sunday, May 5th.
Women ranged from new riders to racers, were grouped according to their comfort and skill level and participated in interactive sessions appropriate to their needs. Ladies heard presentations by our sponsors about training and nutrition strategies and stretching techniques.
After an afternoon of learning and practicing bicycle handling sills such as cornering, participants were treated to a post-clinic Cinco de Mayo celebration.
