VC Venta Women’s Group - What We Do
The VC Venta Women’s group is aimed at encouraging more women to cycle and to join our great club. We’re a friendly bunch of all ages, and experience galore!
The women have a small sub-committee comprising of Tina Webster and Amy Thorpe who also form part of the wider club management committee.
We recognise that confidence can be a significant barrier for women cycling, especially on the open road. We currently run a women’s only road ride on alternate Saturday mornings, and ad-hoc mountain bike rides usually on a Monday evening, as well as regular social evenings.
We also offer occasional women only coaching sessions to help you develop your cycling skills. These are aimed at absolute beginners through to those that are racing.
Of course the women's group is only a part of the wider club which offers lots more opportunity to ride your bike, with formal rides on Tuesday evenings and sociable Sunday Club Rides. We can offer a wealth of knowledge for those who wish to have a go at a Time Trial, road or circuit racing or Cyclo-cross.
We are always looking to develop and enhance your experience of belonging to a cycling club and recently organised two bike maintenance evenings.
