We started out as a bunch of friends and used Facebook to help us grow. With an initial following of about 30 riders, we affiliated with British Cycling in 2016, and have more than doubled our membership since then. At the moment, the club is only open to women of 18 and over. We currently have over 80 members.
We are a road cycling club and most of our members ride road bikes (light bikes with drop handlebars). We do welcome members with hybrid bicycles (straight handlebars and may be heavier with more gears) in the C group, the B steadies and Monday rides as long as the pace is right. Mountain bikes are not really suitable as they are heavy and make it hard to keep up. Many of our current members started on hybrids, got the bug and now have lovely road bikes.
