Our National Road Series (NRS) team consists of riders who race locally, nationally and internationally. We provide a pathway and support local young women and open opportunity not previously available to them.
The women’s elite CDF Women’s Racing Team in Western Australia is a leading example of what can be achieved by people who come together with a common goal.
The team has a representation of senior experienced and young up and coming riders with a bright future. Senior riders provide leadership and advice to junior riders and provide a support network previously scarce in women’s cycling. The team also supports a development group with the aim of filtering into the registered team.
Competition includes supporting local club racing, state championships and National Road Series (NRS). In 2016-17 the team partnered with a European based initiative, and in 2018 offer European racing scholarships to support riders internationally.
The women’s team play a role in community events and spreading the cycling word and encouraging more women to ride bikes more often. Through the weekly ‘Women’s Cycling Perth’, and ride to work days, our team members reach out to many women to help improve their confidence, skill and love for bike riding.
