LWRC Cycle and Chat


The LWCR are roughly halfway through their series of Meet & Greet rides and we have some feedback from those that have taken part.  These rides are a chance for women of all ages and abilities to meet up for a social cycle and chat. There is a mix of levels and no-one is left behind.

It is clearly a winning formula - thanks to the support of the local clubs and sponsors Mulebar, the rides have proven very popular with up to 20 women joining in.  Distances range from 30 to 45 miles and there is a choice groups based on speed, which start at a very social 12 mph.  Judging by the comments, these outings have gone down well with London's women cyclists.


Solveig Findley of Twickenham CC said “I went on the London Dynamo Meet & Greet ride and found it good fun. They were a really nice pace to ride and chat, and to meet new people - very informal. More of the same I say!”


“I needed to work on my confidence and bike handling skills” from Barbie Chan, Serpentine Running Club, “joining a relaxed, non-competitive, but nonetheless experienced riding group seemed the way to go, and the women's ride fit the bill perfectly!

And there was more great feedback from Caroline Oates, “I had a great time on the Dulwich Paragon ride. I had previously done a reasonable amount of cycling - initially triathlons and quite a few cyclosportives last year, but never with a club. The mix of levels was ideal as it meant you could pick the pace that suited, and I was relieved that no-one was left behind. Everyone was really friendly and very welcoming and I’ve already been back to join the Dulwich Paragon Saturday Club rides on a couple of occasions and will be joining the club.”



Come and join other women cyclists on the rides hosted by clubs in different parts of London and the South East, where you can find out more about women’s cycling from experienced club cyclists.
