Use our women's rides in August to motivate yourself onto your bike!

Ladies… It’s time to get back in the saddle, and we’re here to help!

For the 4th year running, we will be hosting two women’s rides to give you some of the road training you’ll need to tackle the Discovery 947 Ride Joburg on Sunday 17 November.

Get your girlfriends together and join us for a free, safe group ride through the Cradle with experienced lead riders, and roadside medical and mechanical support.

Dates: Sunday 11th August & Sunday 25th August 2019

Venue: Bidon Bistro, R374 Kromdraai Road, Driefontein, Muldersdrift

Time: 07h00 registration & coffee for 08h00 start

Distance: 20 to 50km depending in your ability

Pace: All levels welcome – we’ll let the field sort itself into faster and slower groups, and sweep vehicles will ensure no rider is left behind.

Registration: Please note numbers are restricted for each ride so all interested riders are asked to pre-register HERE for 11th August ride and HERE for 25th August ride.

**Ride Like a Local Cycling Tours **will have a full team in attendance on the day. Before the Women's Ride they will offer a short technical talk before the ride on the do’s and don’ts when it comes to cycling and what to bring.

They'll supply at least 3 cycling guides per batch and in conjunction with Ridgeway Cycles will provide 2 mechanics for any queries before the ride and on route support.

Although Ride Like a Local Cycling Tours are a relatively new company, it does not mean they are new to the sport. Their professional team has many years’ experience in the field and have been assisting in the Women’s Day rides since their inception.

See how much fun we had last year!
