About the Race Teams

The priority of CWCP; Naked Women’s Racing is to promote women’s cycling, our sponsors and our team. In addition to being great ambassadors to cycling, we are also involved in our community. 

We are an all women cycling team with racers in road, mountain, cyclocross and track. Many of our team members train and race in multiple disciplines! Each group has captains which organize training rides and assist with race planning and social events. While we take racing seriously, we are also about fun and most importantly, mentoring new riders and racers. We want more women on bikes! We offer skill building clinics and team camp for all members to foster development and team work!

We have a code of conduct which all race and club team members agree to follow as a condition of joining us. 

Some of the key expectations include:

Following bicycle related laws on roads, paths and mountain bike trails which includes being courteous, obeying all traffic laws and sharing the road as a positive representative of our team and the sport. 

Supporting and abiding by all USAC and UCI standards, rules and code of conduct.

Racing cleanly.  All team members agree not to consume any substance banned by the anti-doping terms of USADA, WADA, USCF, CCA, FIAC, UCI, IOG, or any anti-doping, participating or governing body, event related. 

Riding and racing safely and fairly. 

Wearing our team kit during training and competition, racing in the current year kit.

Being mindful of social media posts and ensuring published content respects our values and those of our sponsors.
