    BAY AREA WOMEN'S CYCLING ANNOUNCES ITS 2003 WOMEN'S CYCLING CLINIC ON APRIL 19 AND APRIL 20

    Clinic Kicks Off Northern California Women's Category 3 and 4 Road Bicycling Racing Series

    March 31, 2003, San Francisco, CA—Bay Area Women's Cycling (BAWC) announced its third annual Bay
    Area Women's Cycling Clinic on Saturday and Sunday April 19 and April 20. The 2003 Northern
    California Women's Category 3 and 4 Road Bicycle Racing Series kicks off the following weekend,
    Saturday April 26, with the Wente Road Race in Livermore. The clinic and series are organized by
    Brooke Kuhn, president of Bay Area Women's Cycling and a category 3 competitive cyclist herself.

    "Last year's clinic and race series were an amazing experience for me, but more importantly for the
    women who participated," says Kuhn. "Sixty women signed up for the clinic last year, and we saw the
    number of women racing competitively jump 93% from 2001 to 2002. Though it's still really early in
    the race season, Casey Kerrigan, vice president of the Northern California Nevada Cycling
    Association, told me that the category 4 women's field in the Snelling Road Race (February 22,
    416) outnumbered the category 4 men in a race for the first time he can ever remember."

    The Bay Area Women's Cycling Clinic on Saturday and Sunday, April 19 and 20, helps women and
    teenagers at the beginner and intermediate levels of racing or endurance riding to learn and improve
    racing strategy and bicycle handling skills. The clinic will be taught by Bay Area professional
    cyclist, Nicole Freedman, a two-time U.S. National Champion and former member of the U.S Olympic
    Road Team.

    The Racing Series is based on points earned for participation and placement in each of its races,
    with prizes awarded to the top 10 finishers after the 5th as well as final races. All of the races
    on the 2003 schedule have separate races and or standings for Categories 3 and 4 riders. Founded by
    Brooke Kuhn in 2001, BAWC's mission is improving the health and well-being of women and girls in the
    Bay Area through physical fitness. Specifically, BAWC encourages women and girls to ride bicycles,
    improve their cycling, and participate in bicycle races. To fulfill its mission, BAWC has built a
    women's cycling community throughout the Bay Area with monthly rides hosted by a variety of women's
    groups and cycling clubs. For more information, visit www.BAWcycling.com, email

    As a woman bike racer, you've experienced: · How difficult it is to race when all the categories are
    lumped together, · How hard it is to measure progress when you don't get a chance to race against
    many competitors, · How promoters are reluctant to separate women's race categories when field sizes
    are so small. That's why there's a race series to help address these issues! Announcing The 2003
    Northern California Women's Category 3 & 4 Road Bicycle Racing Series Sponsored by the Northern
    California Nevada Cycling Association

    The Racing Series is a points series with prizes awarded to at least the top ten – after the 5th and
    10th races. All of the races on the 2003 schedule have separate races and/or placings for the
