    by  • September 23, 2013 • interviews, womyn on weels

    Producer Notes:

    “NorCal CyclingNews is committed to supporting both men and women’s peloton to promote bike racers in their journey to success!  This is a very unique interview wherein we connect women’s peloton globally.  Sharing experiences and information about women bike racers with the help of social media expands their fan base.  Fans will be able to find out more about their life as a professional cyclist.

    As a proud producer of NCCN’s Women’s Peloton shows, interviewing women professional cyclist around the globe is learning about the diversity of women racers out there.  Women’s professional cycling is changing as we’ve seen over the last year.  Recently, Women’s Cycling Association in the US was formed, there is a petition for a Tour de France for women in conjunction with the men, a documentary in the works and as recently most talked about women’s teams protest in the Giro Toscana for more safety in the race.  Ashleigh and Starla have strong voices in the women’s peloton and will inspire others to pursue their passions.”
