Are you passionate about cycling, and looking to take your riding further by joining regular club and training rides?
We have many women riders of all ages and skill levels, but we always welcome more women to the club to take part in our weekly rides. Whether you are an experienced racer or a newer rider looking to improve your skills, we encourage you to join us.
We understand that joining a new cycling club can be intimidating, which is why we offer support to all new members. When you first attend one of our rides, we will ensure that you are paired with an experienced female rider who can guide you through the group riding skills you need to know.
If you are interested in joining Bristol Road Club, please contact Ali Cameron for more information. Also for those who would prefer not to ride in mixed-sex groups, you may want to consider Lunar Cycles, which is a BRC Sister Club, see details below.
At Bristol Road Club, we offer a range of opportunities for female cyclists to get involved in the sport. We have regular training rides. Our goal is to support all our members in achieving their cycling goals, whether that’s increasing your speed and distance, getting out with a club regularly, or competing in local races.
Lunar Cycles is the sister club of BRC. It is a great option for those wanting to ride with other women and those identifying as non-binary/gender non-conforming (GNC). Lunar cycles aims to provide space for women and GNC folk in road cycling and to increase their visibility in cycling.
Lunar Cycles run 2 rides per month – one around 50-60km at roughly 21 km/h (for hybrid and road bikes), the other 70-100km at 22-25 km/h (for road bikes only). Please note these are not beginner rides but they are non-drop rides (nobody will be left behind, and we will wait for people at the top of hills etc).
The group welcomes anyone identifying as women, non-binary or GNC. Details of the rides can be found on the Club Rides page under Lunar Cycles, on Instagram @_lunarcyles_, or please email Rosie at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more details/have any questions.
