Cyclepath's Ladies Road Ride

Ladies come out and ride with us! 

Whether you're a beginner or an experienced rider, we invite you to join us for our Thursday evening road rides. You can meet other like-minded women, enjoy the scenery, and get some exercise. Our ride is designed to be inclusive, and our goal is to create a positive and supportive environment where everyone can feel welcome and comfortable. So whether you're looking to improve your cycling skills, make new friends, or simply have some fun on two wheels, come join us on our next ride!


Our First Group Ride for 2024 is on April 4 at 6pm

No-Drop Group Rides

Our ladies group rides are all no-drop rides.

This means you'll never be left alone to make your way back to the store. 

The leaders will stop at various points along the way each week to make sure everyone is still with the group. 

Wherever possible, we'll also have a 'sweep' in the group. The sweep will ride at the back of the group to make sure all riders are safe and together. This will depend on leader availability and the number of riders who show up, however.

'A' Group

Our A Group is for riders who want to workout. This ride is fast, fun, and friendly. It's designed to be a social ride, not a race. 

Riders in this group are usually experienced riding with others and can hold an average pace of 22+km/h (often up to 25+km/h). 

'B' Group

Our B Group is for riders who are looking to work up a sweat while working on group riding skills - and making new friends, of course! 

Our B Group averages around 20km/h across the ride each week. The group often covers around 20km, with varying amounts of elevation. 

'C' Group

Our C Group is a beginner-friendly, social-paced, no drop ride. 

This is a fun, friendly, and supportive place to join your first group road ride.  But it's not just for beginners! Our C Group has a long-time, loyal following of fun ladies who just enjoy getting together for a ride each week. 

Earn a Jersey

If you join us for ten rides during the season, you'll earn a (free) Cyclepath store jersey. These jerseys are redesigned every two years and many riders wear them as a badge to show how long they've been joining our rides. 

Join us today - and you'll be one ride closer to earning yours! 

Sharon: Our Fearless Ride Leader

Sharon is the driving force behind our Thursday Ladies Road Rides. 
She has been a ride leader since the ride first started in 2011. She's the B group leader, an Ironman finisher, and an absolute wealth of knowledge. 
She has 2 Liv bikes - an Envie road bike and an Avow tri bike. 

We asked her what she likes about cycling and here's what she said: 
"I love the friendships I have made through riding and introducing women to the great sport of cycling."
