Cycling is not just for MAMILs! We have a core group of ladies who regularly ride with the club and we're always delighted to welcome more. They participate in a variety of disciplines, including road, TT, MTB, cyclocross and sportives.
Our Ladies Captain is Donna Dale, who is very happy to talk - and ride! - with prospective new lady members to help you feel at ease about joining the club. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to talk to Donna or any of the other ladies in the club.
Ladies race team
Three of our ladies entered the first ever CC London Women's Road Race 2018 at the end of April. Donna Dale came 11th place in a gruelling 56-mile race on home turf that left from Great Chesterford and did seven circuits of an 8-mile course up Littlebury Hill, through Littlebury Green, down to the B1039 and back round to Wendons Ambo, before returning past Audley End House to Littlebury Hill again. The race combined 2nd, 3rd and 4th CAT riders and Donna came 1st out of the 4th CAT contenders.
Tour of Wessex
Two of our ladies entered this year's Tour of Wessex at the end of May, the biggest multi-stage sportive in the UK. Continuing over three days back-to-back, Hazel Turton and Anna Scanlan rode the full 324-mile course, climbing an incredible 21,000 feet, through beautiful countryside in Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire. Congratulations ladies on an amazing achievement!
From time to time, our ladies take off their helmets and get together over dinner. And do social rides to local cafés.
