Published January 18, 2018

BOULDER, Colo. (BRAIN) — The North American Handmade Bicycle Show has added the inaugural NAHBS Women’s Symposium to the seminar schedule for next month’s show in Hartford, Connecticut.

The three-part women’s seminar series will feature several noteworthy and accomplished women in the industry, including Ellen Noble, professional cyclocross and road racer; Cait Dooley, product manager for GT Bicycles; Anne Hed, CEO of Hed Cycling; and Emily Kachorek, owner of Squid Bikes.

“We’re excited to add these seminars to the lineup, as they are great subject matters and give women a platform to share their expertise and to inspire others,” NAHBS founder and president Don Walker said. “We’re always looking for ways to grow the sport that we love, and for new opportunities to support all of the people that make up this great industry — including women.”

Both men and women are invited to attend the seminars. The topics are:

  • Cycling as Sport: How to Prepare for Your First Competition. Panelists will discuss their personal experiences around competing and offer tips on how to prepare, physically and mentally, for your first competition. (Friday, Feb. 16, noon to 1:30 p.m.) 
  • Careers in the Cycling Industry. Panelists will discuss how they paved their career paths and offers tips and ideas on building a successful career in the bike industry. (Saturday, Feb. 17, noon to 1:30 p.m.)
  • Adding More Miles. Panelists will discuss techniques and tips for adding more miles to your cycling routine, including bike fit, clothing, route planning and nutrition. (Sunday, Feb. 18, noon to 1:30 p.m.)

NAHBS will also have a podcasting room that will be available free of charge to media interested in recording a podcast at this year’s show. The room will be available during show hours.
