Cinderella Training RidesEvery year the FFBC runs the Cinderella Training Ride Program. This weekly series of rides is designed to encourage women to learn to ride a bicycle safely in groups and to develop the skills needed to successfully complete the Valley Spokesmen's Cinderella Century.
The 2013 Cinderella Century is scheduled for Saturday April 6, 2013. The training program will start in mid-January.
Progressive Ride Series
The Progressive Ride Series is designed to get riders in condition to do a full century. This series starts in mid-January with shorter and flatter rides and gradually builds up to a full century, which is the Worker's Ride in April following the Primavera route. Rainouts will not alter the schedule of the series. The emphasis is on an M pace, which will be offered for each ride. Other paces may or may not be supported; check each ride description in the calendar for full details.
