womens master raceMany years of hard work have paid off! As of 2019, a new category added to the Tennessee Bicycle Racing Association’s Best Area Rider (BAR) Series will now give masters women the opportunity to race with their age-group peers and compete for a coveted series jersey and podium spots.

The new BAR series is a long-awaited and exciting achievement for women’s cycling in Tennessee. Masters-aged women are a growing segment of the racing population: the number of licensed women racing bicycles in TN increased 32% between 2014 and 2017; for masters-aged women the increase was 51%. And in 2018, the success of the inaugural Empower Her Women’s Masters Race Series showed just how committed masters-aged women are to the sport of cycling.

The 2019 women’s masters road BAR series is made possible by the Title Sponsor, Empower Electric; Gold Sponsors: MOAB Masters Racing, Southern Velo, and Tennessee Women’s Cycling Project; and Silver Sponsor Alabama Wheelmen Women’s Racing.
