    Deb Garbutt I love Cycling on and off road and enjoy sharing this with other's. It's great to be able to nip to the shops on your bike when you just need a few bits.. but much more fun to get out with other like minded women and enjoy their company as I would hope they enjoy mine.

Rider Comments on the Route

  • Nadia Eddy Thursday 5th February I absolutely LOVE this ride and the women who take part in it. This was my second time completing it and as always, cycle instructors Debs, Mel and Emma really made the ride enjoyable, exciting and fun. They are ALWAYS on hand to help you and are EXCEPTIONALLY patient no matter how basic your skills are, which is particularly important to me as I am a complete novice cyclist. This is a ride that I would love to do on a weekly basis, not just because it gives you tremendous cycling skills but also because the cycle instructors and participants are such good fun. Debs, Mel and Emma, many thanks once again for all your patience, support and kindness on these rides, it is TRULY appreciated, Nadia x.

They have REALLY encouraged me to return to my dream of cycling again after having not cycled since early childhood. Many, many thanks to Debs, Emma & Mel for their incredible patience, guidance and support on Wedsnesday - they are TRUE inspirations to the world of cycling and I cannot wait to do another cycle ride with them again very soon!
