Just under a year ago, Penge CC, formed its ladies section. We were a mixed group in terms of age, ability and what we wanted to get out of cycling. Since then, the original ladies have been joined by many more, We have completed events with distances from 40 km to 40 miles (and many hills!) , and several are now signed up for the London to Brighton 2013!
If all this leaves you feeling that our ladies are far too fit for you to join us on our Sunday afternoons, think again. We all remember where we started from, and are keen to encourage new riders. Some of us have trained as ride leaders and one of our group has trained as a British Cycling “Breeze Champion”. Breeze is a programme to encourage women to cycle and fits in very well with the club’s ethos. Below is a short video (click “Breeze Rides”) which explains all about Breeze rides.
To support beginners, we are hosting a series of back to basics road rides, through the Breeze network. These rides will be on quieter roads and around 10 miles in length. to find out more, or to discuss the ladies rides, please contact Yvonne Wright on 07949 284404 or e.mail firstname.lastname@example.org
