Our Story

OUR MISSION: To inform, instruct and inspire female cyclists of all abilities.

OUR VISION: We want to see more women with the skills and confidence to be effective leaders in our cycling community.

OUR PROMISE: We are dedicated to providing opportunities for women to gain riding confidence on the road or trail. Our riding time together will focus on skill development but we’ll mostly be having a good time and supporting each other.
