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!
We ride weekly from the store at 6:00PM each Thursday
We strongly recommend all riders have both front and rear lights on their bikes for visibility and safety (and because Kelowna's bylaws require them when riding close to dawn or dusk).
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.

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).
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.
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.
