The Stedman’s Women’s ride was started in 2012 with a small group of South County cyclists, and has in the last five years grown to a large group of women who gather weekly. We want to help women find a fun and welcoming community to ride with and help develop their riding abilities.
The Tuesday night ride is a road ride that starts at 5:30 from Stedman’s shop and heads out towards the Kingston Train Station, which is mile 6. From here, we split into 3 groups based on speed and distance. Three groups with cruising speeds (not average speed!) of 14-16mph, 16-18mph, and 18+ mph will cover between 20-35 miles depending on the week and group. Our goals include improving riding skills within a group, overall confidence on the bike, specific skills such as handling, drafting, and cornering. We also aim to create a happy and fun ladies cycling community! We require a well maintained road bike and a helmet and ask that you are comfortable maintaining 15mph on a flat road when riding alone.
