What's It All About?

You are in control of your bike club experience! We encourage you to take charge by telling us what you hope to get from the club. Our Girls' Bike Club aims to inspire local girls to get on their bikes and explore the outdoors on their doorstep. We aim to continue the bike club with many more rides, cycling film nights, and expeditions to follow.

What Will You Learn?

Along the way we teach basic bike maintenance skills, helping to keep things working as they should, as well as making sure everybody knows how to make their own repairs when venturing off on their own. You will also learn basic navigation skills, how to set up an overnight camp, and how to look after yourself outdoors. Most importantly however, we want everyone involved to just have fun, make new friends who love bikes and the outdoors, explore local outdoor places by bike, and help grow confidence.

What's the Age Range?

This club is aimed at girls aged 13-18. Don't have a bike of your own? No problem. We can provide you with bikes for the weekly session. We don't want anyone to miss out just because you don't have your own stuff.

How Much Does it Cost?

Each session costs only £1. As always, we welcome donations if you are able to do so.
