2015 Women's Woodstock Cycling Grand Prix

Martin Ernst Bruhn and his team are bringing the third annual Women's Woodstock Cycling Grand Prix to Woodstock on Saturday, May 2.

The WWCGP is a one-day competitive cycling event consisting of two women's-only bicycle races on a national caliber course. The Pro 1/2/3 is set to begin on Saturday morning at 9:10. Cyclists will depart from Woodstock and wind 60.3 miles through the Woodstock, Saugerties and Phoenicia areas, with an elevation gain/loss of 3,096 feet. A second race, the Category 3/4, will be launched at 9:20 a.m. Saturday and go 32.5 miles.

Bruhn's mission is to "highlight the equal sportsmanship and athleticism of females in the male dominated sport of cycling." Proceeds from this event will benefit Raising HOPE, The Bowery Mission of New York City, and Play to Live.org.

There is also a Family Fun Ride on Saturday morning of 6.2 miles, where the focus will be on bicycling safety and community involvement.
