Benefits of riding with the Ladies Section
Many ladies find that unless they have a natural athletic ability, plus the discipline and time to train, that they can’t comfortably keep up with many of the male riders.
Some ladies however enjoy the challenge of riding with the men. There is always the opportunity and challenge to try out Mountain Biking and to ride on organised events. We are lucky to be part of the Winchcombe Cycling Club which provide all these opportunities.
However our motivation is not just for the fitness, that we will gain, but to enjoy the company, the countryside and the adventure. There is no competitiveness, just the odd bit of fun and we all support each other.
As our group continues to grow in size it makes us realize that other ladies also feel that the fitness we have all gained is just an added benefit to the wonderful rides we have enjoyed together.
Don’t worry if you don’t feel fit or healthy enough to keep up with everyone. The group is supportive of new member’s abilities and is always willing to encourage and welcome new riders.
It’s been an exciting time since we formed this section. We have fulfilled our original aim to introduce more ladies to cycling, improve our fitness and to make new friends…..and to work towards and achieve those once impossible goals!
We now have 2 qualified Breeze Champions who have been trained by British Cycling as Ride Leaders. British Cycling’s Breeze Network is all about fun, local bike rides for women. Lead by women the rides are informal, social and free!
