Women's Training Series - The Recap

For the past four weeks, seven intrepid Victoria Wheelers women braved the spring sunshine (and occasional showers) to partake in the coached training series.  

Week 1 found us in the parking lot of Beacon Hill Park, practicing individual bike handling skills, from braking, to cornering to figure 8's, until we were dizzy and dreaming of riding in straight lines again.  Narrowly escaping the briefest bout of showers, we finally warmed up again on the way back, fine tuning our single pace.  

Monday Night Women's Ride

Lead by the Victoria Wheelers (female) Ambassadors, the Monday night Women’s ride leaves from OBB Victoria @ 6:00 p.m. This mildly undulating 30 km route is designed to teach group riding etiquette and to meet other women in the cycling community.
