Here at Hope we believe there should be a lot more women on two wheels than there currently is. The female riding movement is growing but we’d like it to grow faster! Hence we’re organizing a fortnightly Tuesday women’s night ride in the north-west of England.
We’d like to encourage women to meet other female riders. It can often be a struggle for female riders to find a riding partner or group who aren’t guys. Aside from the social aspect, riding with other girls can be inspiring and confidence boosting. The rides will be a ride. Not a training session, not a race, just a good old social ride with a good chance of a brew and cake afterwards!
The Tuesday night rides will take place every other Tuesday, with the first few meet-ups taking place at Gisburn Forest Trail Centre – more details can be found here. The first ride will be on 5th April, 6.15pm meet at Gisburn. After a couple of rides we’ll look to mix up the rides with a “natural” ride every couple of weeks.
Hope’s Brand Manager Rachael Walker will be on hand to lead the ride and offer a few tips along the way. To offer an extra incentive we will have a number of fully Hope’d up bikes that can be borrowed for the rides, all you’ll need to do is email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a bike. Bikes available are:
Juliana Furtado – Small
Juliana Roubion – Small, Medium
Santa Cruz Bronson – Small, Medium, Large
Orange Four- Small, Medium, Large
Specialized Stumpjumper – Medium, Large
The rides are completely free, booking isnt essential but it would be handy to know numbers for cake purchasing requirements! Please email email@example.com if you would like to come join us for a ride!
