Women’s Cycling Summit Conference 

June 2004

Third Yoplait Women’s Cycling Summit Conference

The Yoplait Women’s Cycling Summit Conference will return to the Great River Energy Bicycle Festival this June. Participants will include riders and managers competing in the Nature Valley Grand Prix and cycling luminaries from across the country. The mission of the Task Force is to build women’s cycling at both the grassroots and elite level in North America. The conference is open to anyone who is interested in building women’s cycling.

A core goal that came out of past Yoplait Summits was to create a web site that could be used to accumulate and share information and to open channels of communication between women cyclists and their supporters. The Task Force web site went live in January and is continuing to be developed. You can visit the site at  www.WomenCyclists.com

The second goal has been achieved with the creation of the Women’s Prestige Cycling Series. This women-only series is highlighting women’s racing by giving them a spotlight that the women don’t have to share with the men. Series events include the Redlands Bicycle Classic (March 24-28), the Nature Valley Grand Prix (June 9-13), the Tour de ‘Toona/International (July 26-Aug 1) and the Bermuda Grand Prix (Sept 23-26).

Topics at the Yoplait Summit in June will include a mid-series review of the Women’s Prestige Cycling Series, getting media coverage for women’s racing and grassroots development programs.

The Yoplait Summit began last year at the Great River Energy Bicycle Festival. It now takes place twice annually: at the Festival in June and at the Interbike trade show in October. The Third Yoplait Summit will take place on Friday, June 11, from noon to 3:00 pm at the Park Inn Suites, 7770 Johnson Av S, Bloomington, MN. Directions can be found at www.MinnBikeFestival.com
