RISE - FREE Women's Gravel and Road Cycling Clinic


What makes the sport of gravel so beautiful? We believe it's using our bike to break down barriers and the sense of empowerment that comes from it. But that same sense of adventure can bring a major intimidation factor. Let's face it, between the equipment, fitness, group riding, bike handling skills, and course variables, it can be a lot to decipher through. 

So whether you are a seasoned dirt pony or a gravel newbie, we welcome you to come to our first-ever Rise Women’s Gravel Clinic. Led by the 2021 Unbound, SBT, and Gravel World's Winner Lauren De Crescenzo. The goal: empower more women in the sport of gravel cycling with badass skills and ability. 

Our mission is that you leave the weekend with the tools and skills to take your cycling to new heights. Whether that's signing up for your first race, conquering the long-distance, or mixing it up the race peloton and going for a podium finish. This clinic is for ladies who are ready to learn skills that they can apply to their own cycling from one of the sport’s best. 


The clinic will be held out of the Cinch Cycles shop in Longmont, Colorado. The clinic is FREE for all women that wish to attend. Please email kourtney@cinchcycling.com  with any questions and to RSVP as spots are limited. Both gravel and road bikes are suitable for this clinic. Please bring a helmet, water bottle and food.
