Written below are the logistics for the Renaissance Club Sport women's cycling training program for the Cinderella event. This program, run by Glenda Smith of Club Sport Walnut Creek, was the springboard that took Rachael from an occasional 10 mile bike rider (because her husband made her) to a cycling enthusiast who can't wait for the next weekly 50 to 70 mile ride with thousands of feet of climbing. If there are any women out there interested in learning the skills required to regain their inner athlete we cannot recommend this program enough.
