Women Cycling Camp

WCC is not a race, and it’s not a solo event either. It’s a collective ride for women to explore your ultracycling limits

SANTANDER, 13 MAY & LOGROÑO, 7 OCT. // 2023

Inscriptions are OPEn in FEBRUARY 1ST

# WOMENCYCLINGCAMP2023

THE STORY SO FAR

At Transiberica we have been promoting female participation in our events since 2019. However, the percentage of female participation is still below 14%, under the 20% we already target as a reasonable minimum participation.

We believe that the main reason for low female participation is the fear of the unknowns that these races entail. Even today, there is still a lack of information on how to train specifically, gear up, or prepare mentally for this type of event.

To help overcome that fear and encourage women to take part in such events, we are launching training camps by and for female cyclists to introduce you to ultracycling. We provide useful information about training, nutrition and other important skills for competing in an ultra distance event such as navigation or mechanical skills.

This year we are hosting two women only Introductory Ultracycling events in weekend camp format where you will ride 300-350K self-supported rides. In order to make it easier for you to explore your limits, we will provide accommodation, dinner and breakfast, a track, and some female ambassadors as ‘guides’. And of course, a great environment with fellow female cyclists like yourself. At these camps we hope to be able to answer your concerns and give you that last little push to have a go at ultracycling adventuring.
