Massive thanks to the fantastic crew at Mitchell Cycles who gave us a brilliant Ladies Maintenance evening tonight.
We loved the Swinduro last September, so we’re super excited to see it back early with a ladies only race on 18th March!
We held our first ever ladies maintenance evening on Thursday at Mitchell Cycles, who excelled themselves, putting on a fantastic event. It was extremely informative and great fun, so we hope to hold more in future. Here’s a little about what we got up to. Continue reading Ladies Maintenance Evening Review
We have added an additional category to our events calendar – Ladies Rides. This means you can filter or subscribe to a calendar of just Ladies Rides should you want to.
A huge gathering at lunch will set us up for an afternoon of yet more trail fun!
Please note….. Helmets are compulsory at BikePark Wales and Full face helmets are advisable.
We’ve not been to FoD for ages, so we’re going to do another “FoD 4 All” event.
Basing ourselves at Pedalabikeaway, we will have several ride leaders, offering different rides for all abilities – a great introduction if you’ve not been before.
A lap of the legendary Verderers is bound to be on the agenda, but also downhill trails and some of the techy super steep off piste tracks in the Cannop Valley too.
We will also have at least one coach on offer if anyone wants to session some features, such as roots, jumps or drops, or certain sections of trail (the top of Corkscrew has a great sequence of features in one short run for learning).
Meet at outside the Pedalabikeaway café at 10.30am
So we’re going to do this excellent final round in the amazing Peak District in 2019.
Although the main event is on the Sunday, there are also a Ladies Ride on the Saturday morning and a night marathon on the Saturday night, which has a choice of distances and light hire available from Exposure Lights.
On the Sunday 3 distances are available – Mini (25km), Half (45km) and Full (65km!). Bear in mind it’s in the Peak District, and the hills are big too, as well as the distance!
We’ve got members booked on the Half, but all routes start out together.
We have a bunch of Ladies Rides coming up, with a couple of trips to Nightingale Woods on our weekday Ladies Leisure Rides and our first Ladies Weekend Ride at the end of the month.
And don’t forget the Ladies groups on our regular Wednesdays After Work at Croft too.
All abilities welcome on all the events 🙂
