Rapha Women's 100

Sunday 7th July at 8.30am This is what time the ride will set off. It’s best to get to the starting point at least 15 minutes beforehand to avoid missing the start.

Starting Point & Postcode
The Hub is situated close to the Stanley Road entrance, opposite the playground. Please note there is a height barrier at the entrance to the Stanley Road car park (1.98m/6'6"). Alternative parking is available on Stanley Road itself and at the main entrance to Mary Stevens Park (Heath Lane/Worcester St DY8 2AA)  DY8 2DN
Overall Duration On a long ride, it’s sometimes good to have a little break in the middle, or maybe a catch up at the beginning or end to keep it sociable. This means that the overall ride duration may be longer than the actual cycling time.

Join us on Sunday 7th July to ride 100km as part of the Rapha Women's 100!
The Rapha Women's 100 (http://bit.ly/womens100event) is a global event getting thousands of women around the world to ride 100km on the 7th July wherever they are.
More information here http://bit.ly/womens100
This will be a steady circular ride (average pace 9.5mph) starting and finishing at The Hub, Mary Stevens Park, Stourbridge. The route will take us through the gently undulating countryside of Worcestershire, passing through Belbroughton, Dodford, Elmbridge, Droitwich, Worcester, Holt Fleet, Hartlebury and Chaddesley Corbett. You can view the route here:

You will need:
- to arrive at 8:20am for a prompt 8:30am start (we won't be able to wait for latecomers, I'm afraid). Hopefully we'll return around 4:30ish (may be earlier) but this can't be guaranteed,
- a well maintained bike, tools and inner tube,
- picnic lunch, snacks and drink (we can't guarantee a cafe break, but there will be opportunities to refill water bottles and have 'comfort' breaks,
- mobile phone and emergency backup on standby in case of irreparable mechanical problems/unable to complete the ride,
- money (emergency train fare/cafe stop if we're lucky),
- extra layer/waterproofs etc
- helmet advised as we'll be riding on road.
Any further questions/queries, please email us at breezenetworksb@hotmail.com
Look forward to seeing you!

Meet the Champions

  • Mary McAdam Mary McAdam Hi, I'm Mary and I've always enjoyed cycling, whether it was wandering off to explore as a child, being a hard up student, a mum doing 'something different' with young children or trying to get some 'me' time. However, I was a fairweather-traffic free-slow rides only with lots of stops- cyclist who didn't understand the concept of changing gears (having driven automatic cars for many years) or that you could change the saddle on your bike if it was Really Uncomfortable...

    All that changed when I joined a local cycle club. With lots of help, advice and encouragement I have gained confidence and had many experiences and adventures (usually with overloaded panniers...). I'm now a Bikeability Instructor, I volunteer for the Leap Over 50 Cycling Programme with AgeUK in Dudley and best of all, I have an encyclopaedic knowledge of all the cafes within a 50 mile radius of Stourbridge!

    I'd like to encourage more women to get on their bikes; to improve their cycle skills so they can ride safely and confidently; to get to know the local area and most of all, to gain a fantastic circle of like-minded friends. All are welcome - from the Totally Terrified to the Extremely Experienced. Looking forward to seeing you soon!
  • Maureen  Prosser Maureen Prosser Hi I'm Maureen and I work for 'Leap over 50' at Age UK. We run regular rides for those wanting to meet new people, have fun and get fit.

    Look forward to seeing you soon!
