The Women's Woodstock Cycling Grand Prix (WWCGP) was conceptualized and created by Martin Ernst Bruhn, his mission is to highlight the need for equal sportsmanship and attention for female bicycle racers in the male dominated sport of competitive cycling. The movement is gaining momentum and there is now a growing team of volunteers who bring energy and expertise to the cause. Together they are making this dream of highlighting the bicycle through a community-inspired women's bicycle race.
Traveling through Woodstock, Saugerties, and Phoenicia, there is no beating the location of this bicycle race. As you ascend and descend Catskill mountains, one can appreciate this impeccably routed course and try to take in the scenery, (but watch your speed!) The course begins and ends in historical Woodstock, N.Y. rich in culture and musical history which has given birth to a beautiful and bustling town of art galleries, shops and eateries. The WWCGP is a display of feminine sportsmanship covering over 50 miles of demanding terrain, touching and inspiring many communities, illustrating the wonder of cycling.
