With recent announcements from UCI banning transgender women from competing in the women’s category during races, we wanted to uplift events doing the amazing work to create spaces for the FTWNB community.
Here is a list of femme, trans, women, and non-binary led cycling events to support, follow, and attend.
This is not a comprehensive list by any means, so please add FTWNB led cycling events that should be recognized in the comments.
The Truffle Shuffle
Oct 28 – 29, 2023
We believe bike racing is for everyBODY, and we mean it! New to bike events, nervous about bigger races, or just curious? The Truffle Shuffle is the perfect place to spin your wheels, make some new pals, and get down with the bike community!

Rasputitsa transcends the realm of a mere gravel cycling race; it embodies a homegrown, self-supported endeavor that tests the limits of the mind, body, and soul. It welcomes all individuals and all types of bicycles, fostering inclusivity and a shared passion for exploration.
20 Chapters across the U.S. and Australia
Events vary on the RAR Chapter
Established in 2021, the RAR Chapters program seeks to connect RAR communities at regional levels through hosting rides, events, and workshops for BIPOC and FTWN-B folks.
To be clear, RAR Chapters will not attend events that have transphobic policies and will not support brands that endorse them.
Since 2017, our mission has been to create networks and programs to support FTWNB and BIPOC folks in cycling and the outdoors. UCI’s policy does not change our mission and only gives us more reason to continue what we’ve already been doing. Trans women are women and we are committed to keep doing the work to increase access, reduce barriers, and center voices for our community.
