She Rides. For fitness. To make friends. For freedom!
There’s nothing quite like riding a bike to experience the feeling of freedom. For most it quickly brings back childhood memories of riding with friends, having fun outdoors, being fit and active. But for many women, somewhere along the road to adulthood, the bike gets put away and they stop riding.
She Rides is an introductory riding program focused on fitness, skills development and creating a social riding community of women – to get you ready to make riding part of your everyday life.
The program, available at Palm Beach this spring, is designed to run over eight weeks, with one session each week. The program includes face-to-face sessions with your accredited coach, in a small group environment, together with a three-month recreational membership to Cycling Australia.
Following the successful program throughout winter and spring, registration is now open for the autumn program, starting in mid March 2015, at sherides.com.au.
Cost: $149 (early bird rego). $169 (regular rego)

In 2013 Cycling Australia undertook a research study into women and cycling. They discovered fitness and health, together with the fun social aspect, were the top reasons women choose to ride. What it also highlighted however was that more women would ride, or ride more regularly, if they felt safer, had access to other women who ride at the same level or access to organised group rides. This research study became the foundation for a new and exciting vision – to create a national community of women who ride – She Rides.
