Cinderella Training Series
Saturdays, January 23 - April 2, 2016
The FFBC Cinderella Training Series is an 11 week training program hosted by the Fremont Freewheelers Bicycle Club (FFBC). The purpose of the training is to help women learn to cycle comfortably in a group setting, and develop the skills necessary to successfully complete a 100K (62 mile) ride. We plan the series to finish just prior to The Valley Spokesmen's Cinderella Classic and Challenge Ride on Saturday, April 9, 2016, to enable riders to be prepared for this local, women only event.
Registration for the 2016 Coaching Series is now closed. For information about the 2017 series please check back in November. If you are an experienced, fit cyclist it's not too late to join our Conditioning Series
Our format for the 2016 is the same as for our 2015 series - we will have a Coaching Series, intended for new riders to help them learn the fundamentals of cycling, and a Conditioning Series, intended for riders who have already learned the fundamentals and who want a fun group to ride with while training for a metric century. If you have participated in the Coaching Series in the past, and have completed the Cinderella Classic 100K ride you are definitely ready for the Conditioning Series! Both series will progress in distance and elevation over the course of the training in preparation to complete metric century distance events, such as the Valley Spokesmen's Cinderella Classic and Challenge, FFBC's own Primavera Century, or one of the many other Spring century rides in and around the Bay Area.

It's all about the gear!
For 2016 we have all new clothing! Pictures of Marcella's gorgeous jersey, vest and arm warmers are below. Unfortunately the order window has passed. If you ordered clothing it should arrive a week or two before the Cinderella ride. Your ride leaders will let you know when and where you can pick up your gear.
