our mission


NYCC Women's Race Team

 

We are grateful to our new title sponsor for supporting the women’s team for the 2019 season

The mission of NYCC Women’s Racing is to make bicycle racing accessible to a broader group of women in the tri-state area. We do this by empowering women to join a challenging and rewarding sport, providing support and encouragement for those who may be interested in racing but who are unfamiliar with--or intimidated--by its demands or status as a male-dominated activity.
