Team Vision:

The Davis Bike Club Women’s Development Program is subgroup within the Davis Bike Club Race Team. The purpose is to grow a women’s cycling team that provides structure, support and mentorship to its riders. The goal for the program is to help its riders learn the sport of cycling, to compete in the NorCal region as a team and enjoy team camaraderie to promote and attract more women to the sport of cycling.

  • Assist and create advocacy programs in the Davis Bike Club community events such as the Dunlap Memorial TT, Fourth of July Criterium, Davis Double, and the Foxy's Fall Century.

  • Teach the women’s development team the importance of creating a fan base through community awareness, media opportunities and local events to support women’s cycling.
