Welcome to CTC Coventry – a member group of Cycling UK
Womens Group News
This page has a bit of background on the Womens Group, and what the current status is.
In 2020 cycling UK promoted a Women’s Festival of Cycling, and this prompted the establishment of a Womens Group within the Club. Vicky Palethorpe organised a series of activities for the Women Members of CTC Coventry to participate in over the course of July and August. This proved such a success that it led to the formation of a Women’s Group as a sub-section, and the appointment of the Women’s Group Co-ordinator as a formal Club role in the 2020 AGM. The group has proved to be vibrant and successful – both in terms of providing support for existing riders and encouraging new and improving cyclists.
Below are some updates on what has been happening with group as it grows and evolves.
Update March 2022
The Club’s Centenary year 2021 was full of successful events, including many of Women Only Rides,
Women’s Festival of Cycling, Women’s 3-days Tour and a joint BREEZE/CTC Ride.
Women were very well represented on the Centenary 100k ride (47%).
Following this success many women haven’t stopped cycling throughout the winter months. We participated in off road rides, cycled pass (and stopped for a cake at) some Historic properties and enjoyed blooms of the first spring flowers.
Now we are looking forward to the start of our new season on Sunday 20th March 2022.
Previous Update December 2021
We have had a fantastic 2021 and all our women riders now feel confident in mixed groups.
If you are thinking about joining us you can feel confident that this is a women-friendly club, and in particular all our ride leaders will support you on any ride you do… We never leave anybody behind !
Our programme of Womens Only rides will be starting again in March on the 3rd Sunday of every month and will be specifically tailored to cater for new riders and improvers. (If you feel you want to start cycling with us before March then please make contact and you could come along with our New Rider Group on the 1st Sunday of each Month)
