The promoter of The Cone-Azalia Classic Road Race, in conjunction with the Michigan Bicycle Racing Association (MBRA) is offering free registration to women racing the event for the first time.

“As popular as this early season race is among the men, we are surprised that very few women choose to put this race on their calendar,” explained Cone-Azalia promoter David Palan. “The Ann Arbor Velo Club (AAVC) has been considering options to increase the number of women racing bicycles in Michigan,” he continued “and, in the past, the number of women participating in Cone-Azalia has been small.”
As intimidating as the race can seem, many riders find that the experience is a rewarding one. MBRA Executive Director Adrian Fear believes that once a woman races in her first Cone-Azalia Classic, she’ll be hooked. To prove her point, Adrian has convinced David to extend this generous offer to each woman racing in her first Cone-Azalia Classic Road Race.
