About this event

Women on Wheels: Couch to 50km for beginners with Women in Sport

What do you need to do?

We will bring you your training of a 10 week plan via printable handout and that can be followed weekly. Starting on the 12th of June, we will provide a 2 hour training session from a qualified tutor on the basic skills of cycling, getting familiar with the bike, group cycling and the technical skills to cycling. Training every two weeks for the 10 weeks will be provided to our participants to help them along the way of their 50 KM. At the end of the 10 weeks, a 50 KM group cycle will commence with your tutor.

A WhatsApp group will be set up to track progress on plan and to gain support from other participants. The LSP team will be here to support you with any questions you have or tips we can provide to you.

No fancy gadgets needed just an open mind to believe you can!

Don't be afraid of trying it, you WILL surprise yourself. We would love to help you with this.

PLEASE NOTE IT IS VITAL THAT WE ALL DO OUR PART AND STICK TO OUR RESTRICTIONS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING PROTOCOLS FROM THE HSE GUIDELINES WHILE WE ARE DOING THIS.
