FAST CHANCE WOMEN'S CYCLING

ONE STEP CLOSER

Fast Chance Women’s Cycling, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Its core mission is to provide a healthy environment to empower and inspire women by creating opportunities in elite cycling. Our goal is to raise $100,000 to support the growth of our competitive domestic elite  squad and and support our programs and initiatives aimed at creating equality and opportunity in women’s cycling.  Our organization showcases the pursuit of excellence in cycling by a team of women who are dedicated, determined, and relentless; looking to capitalize on their personal athletic ability as elite amateurs, and lead them to victory as a powerful, cohesive, and goal-oriented team. We believe by providing opportunities to contribute to a world class team, riders will develop as athletes and leaders to inspire women and girls.

TEAMWORK

FCWC operates a USAC Domestic Elite Women’s road cycling team with a small but powerful roster of four women prepared to race on the national stage in 2018.  Our riders take pride in being positive role models who are committed to teamwork and having an impact on improving the professional landscape for women cyclists, while pursuing careers of their own and giving back to their communities. Our ASCEND Cycling Programs puts our riders at the heart of what we are committed to.

TEAM ROSTER

INTRODUCING OUR NEW RIDERS

SUCCESS RELIES ON GOALS

Success in our mission off the bike will best be recognized with success on the bike. Capitalizing on our squad’s relentless competitiveness, we are committed to competing in the USA Cycling Pro Road Tour (PRT).  The PRT showcases the premier domestic road calendar events in the U.S. The PRT will include overall individual and team rankings for men and women, crowning PRT Champions following the 26-event calendar.  Our goal for 2017 is to participate in 10 of these events; in 2018 our goal is to finish in the top 5 overall for the team classification and have a rider in the top 10 of the individual standings.

ASCEND Cycling Programs

We believe women’s cycling deserves to be viewed on an equal platform as men. We believe in equal payout, television coverage, and we firmly believe in standards of professionalism for a team that pays salaries, provides a professional environment both mentally and physically and helps women develop their athletic talents on the bike while preparing for the challenges of the working world. Through our ASCEND Cycling Programs, we can focus on community outreach and development programs that utilize the strengths of our riders as Ambassadors, Spokespersons, Contributors, Entrepreneurs, Networking and Dedication. It all adds up to change.

EXPANDING OUR REACH

ON A MISSION

We can set women’s cycling apart from the men’s ranks and help propel it to a more equitable and financially stable profession. FCWC has established a $100,000 fund raising goal for 2019.  This will fund the first step of our mission by providing our riders with advanced opportunities as an elite team.  Additionally, we will donate 3% of this initial fund to three other charitable causes chosen by our riders; our way of giving back to the community.  Our philosophy of celebrating women and women’s cycling relies heavily on supporters who believe in the women’s movement and want to contribute and participate in the effort of creating a better environment for aspiring women to achieve in. Nothing will be more successful than that of a squad of empowered women who are treated fairly, equally and respected for who they are.
