Okay, so we may not be the next Beryl Burton or Lizzie Armitstead, but we can still be inspired by our local heroines. Stop worrying about helmet hair and get out there and have some 2 wheel excitement!
Calder Clarion are actively encouraging more female cyclists to join them, and to help us achieve this we run weekly Thursday Ladies rides, a sociable paced ride 12 to 14mph covering 20-25 miles with the route set by the leader at the start and a sociable drink at the finish line.
We know it can be a little daunting joining a new club so rest assured we are a very friendly, inclusive group and new members are very welcome. If you are interested please contact our Calder Clarion women's leader Carolyn Stead for further details.
New members can come out as guests for 3 club rides before we ask you to become a fully fledged member (no secret handshake necessary):
Looking to recruit new lady members, please tell partners, wives, girlfriends et al.
