I really enjoy helping other women find their passion for cycling. I also find women only rides super empowering to build confidence in riding and connection with other women riders.

You don’t need to be the fastest or furthest rider to get involved. We need riders of all abilities and skillsets to encourage more women to get out on their bikes.

Social rides are the best!
