CHELTENHAM DAME ROAD CYCLING CLUB – WOMEN ONLY GUIDED RIDES


These guided rides are aimed at women who can ride at least 25 miles non-stop in under 2 hours and are looking to join a women-only cycling club. It doesn’t matter if you’re keeping fit, young at heart, or wise beyond your years.

Your ride with us will be relaxed, friendly and inclusive and we hope it will inspire you to apply for membership.

On the day, you'll be met and welcomed by senior club members and, after a short briefing, your Cheltenham Dame experience will begin!

At the end of the ride you can optionally treat yourself to a coffee at one of the food retailers who will be at the Cheltenham Festival of Cycling. These guided rides are being supported by Cheltenham Dame Road Cycling Club who are experienced in leading guided rides.

Distance: 17 miles

Difficulty: Easy

Fitness: Must be able to ride at least 25 miles non-stop in under 2 hours (see 'How fit and fast do I need to be' below)

Times: Rides will leave at 10:30 and 14:30 (please arrive at least 10 minutes early)

Speed: We will offer two speed groups reflecting a range of abilities – average speed of 12 to 14 mph and average speed of 14 to 16 mph

How fit and fast do I need to be?

 You’ll need a reasonable level of fitness, but you don’t need to be a super fit racer. Our groups are based on estimated distance and average speed – and you should be comfortable with BOTH. Of course, average speed is highly weather dependent, but it will give you a general idea of what you can expect on one of these rides.

If you are comfortable riding your bike for 25 miles NON-STOP in 2 hours, you’ll be able to join our 12-14mph group.

If you are comfortable riding your bike for 25 miles NON-STOP in under 1 hr 45 minutes, you’ll be able to join our 14-16mph group.

  • Helmet

  • Mud guards in wet weather (or when there was wet weather the day(s) before
