Women-only social riding groups

A number of women-only social riding groups operate around the Perth metropolitan area on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings. These groups are run by ladies who have 'graduated' from our Wheelie Wonderful Women training program and who love cycling so much that they just want to keep on riding!

 

Wednesday Easy Riders:

Suitable for ladies who want a leisurely ride of around 15km. A great group for those getting back into cycing or with low fitness.

The longest and fastest of the weekly rides are held on Wednesdays. Rides are usually 40km (or more), often on road, and at a fast-medium pace.

Friday Ladies:

 Rides are at a medium pace and between 20 and 40km. Suitable for someone of average fitness.

 Saturday Ladies:

A great option for beginner cyclists or those wiht low fitness levels. A leisurely ride of around 15km.
