Activ Ladies Program
Saturday, 31st October 2015 (over 2 years ago)

Program Goal: To have more women riding, more confidently, and more often in a safe, supportive and social environment.

Who can participate: To keep our sessions running smoothly, ladies should be able to complete a river loop at around 24km/h average. This level of fitness will allow our coaches to keep the group together. If you're unsure, please give us a call or email and we can help you make the decision - or provide some options on participating.

Once the riders are into the main skills component, we can handle a greater variation in speed.

Weather: We may run indoor sessions if it is raining. Please check Facebook or the website after 4:30am.

Feedback: PLEASE provide feedback - we want your experience to be awesome.

For ladies riding in the Lifecycle criterium we will go through race mechanics (i.e. what to expect and how to counter it - the Women's D grade race is like a river loop (and the ladies in this grade are lovely) - but a few tips and tricks will help you avoid getting dropped after the prime)

For ladies NOT riding in the Lifecycle criterium, you will be riding a slightly different program that emphasises technical skills over higher-speeds and efforts.
