Guest Post: Wheel Women’s First Ride – by Lusi Lawler

Get on your bikes and ride!

On Saturday 14th January 25 women and girls took to Cardiff on two wheels. The ride set off from The Bike Shed in Pontcanna and four Breeze Champions lead the group on a 11 mile loop to Cardiff Bay; not forgetting the obligatory coffee stop at Coffi Co!

The ride marked the beginning of the female cycling community, Wheel Women. This is a partnership between Sport Cardiff’s Girls Together, Welsh Cycling and The Bike Shed which will provide regular organised rides in Cardiff.

Wheel Women rides will be delivered by trained Breeze Champions and will offer women and girls in Cardiff the opportunity to build their confidence on the bike, increase their fitness and meet other likeminded women. The plan is to hopefully be running two rides every week by the summer. These rides will be varying speeds, they will always go at the pace of the slowest rider and of course, there will always be a coffee and cake stop!

The next Wheel Women ride will be heading out in the next couple of weeks, so watch this space!
