We are inspired by our ever-increasing numbers of female participants taking on our Euro cycle challenges, our long-standing and incredible female cycling crew and, more recently, British Cycling's 'One in a Million' Campaign. As a result, we are introducing a female-only cycling series: Women Ride

 

WE HAVE ONE AIM: TO EMPOWER MORE WOMEN TO GET ON THEIR BIKES, SAFELY AND CONFIDENTLY.

 As with the ethos of all of our challenges; this isn't a race or a competition. It is a safe, supportive and fun place to give cycling a go. We're hoping to provide women with an education on cycling, bikes and road safety through this series and inevitably help them to explore cycling as a part of their day-to-day lives.

Discover Adventure want to break down the barriers for women in cycling, support women to overcome the mental and physical hurdles they may face when out on their daily commute or the ride of a lifetime and help them to achieve, and be a part of, something incredible.

We want to live in a healthier, cleaner world, and for cycling to play a bigger part in our way of life and benefit our mental health - Women are at the heart of that. We will be there to provide support from the initial I’ll try it” to I’ve got this” , aiming to showcase the fun, camaraderie and love of the outdoors that cycling provides.

 

THE ULTIMATE GOAL IS TO TURN SUPPORT TO SELF-RELIANCE, ACHIEVEMENT TO CONFIDENCE, AND ENGENDER A LOVE OF TRAVEL ON TWO WHEELS.

ALL RIDES IN THIS SERIES WILL PROVIDE THE FOLLOWING: 

  • Experienced support crew riding with you

  • Support vehicles for safety and mechanic assistance

  • Check-points en-route with water and snacks

  • Well-designed routes on traffic-light roads

  • No time pressure, no competitive atmosphere
