About Us

Tradewinds Racing is a women's cycling team dedicated to the promotion of competitive cycling through community support and team development. We are a small team who makes a big impact in the region with consistent results and valuable community involvement. Team riders set goals that push their limits and improve their racing, evaluate goals throughout the season, and work together as a team as much as possible. As a team and individuals we will continually strive for success. We will learn fromevery race, our mistakes as well as our victories!

Tradewinds Racing has three levels: NRC Elite, Developmental, and Club Teams. The Club Team membership is open to all women who are interested in a supportive team environment to help them reach a variety of cycling goals.

Tradewinds Racing Developmental Team is designed for riders who are category 3 or 4 at the start of the season. These riders compete locally, regionally, and sometimes nationally, in a variety of races. Developmental riders are selected because they have shown a committment to racing, desire and capcity to improve as a competitive cyclist, and of course a good attitude. The developmental team is limited. Joining the club team is a great way to be considered for the develpomental team.


With success riders in the developmental program can upgrade racing categories and progress onto the Elite Team, which  consists of category 1 and category 2 riders. In the past three years the Elite Team has competed at some of the toughest race in the country including Liberty Classic, pro stage races, national championships, NRC and USA Crits. The team would not be possible without the support of our wonderful sponsors, so check them out and tell them we sent you!  

Cycling is a unique sport because many women begin racing after college, as their high school and college sports careers have ended. Competitive cycling is a great way to be a part of an athletic team as an adult.  More information on racing in Virginia.
