Cycling Ulster Announce ‘Women On Wheels’ Programme

Friday, March 08, 2019

On International Women’s Day Cycling Ulster have announced an exciting new programme to encourage women into cycling. The programme called Women on Wheels will see 18 host cycling clubs across Ulster guide up to 200 beginner females through an 8 week cycling specific training programme. This will culminate with the 200 participants gathering to complete a cycling sportive held by Keevan Cycling Club in the orchard county of Armagh in August.

This programme will increase the current female membership by almost 14% bringing the membership up to nearly 2000 females.
Women on Wheels seeks to target females who are not currently actively involved in cycling clubs, to provide a supportive training programme and to enable them to continue to participate in club cycling activities after completion. All clubs involved in the programme will be given training and advice on how to retain and actively encourage more females into the clubs activities.

More details of the project and participating cycling clubs will be announced shortly on
