Then look no further!

August 2016 for Racing Chance is all about encouraging women to have a go at racing!

On 7 August, the Racing Chance Foundation are running a women’s cycling novice race training session at Tameside in Greater Manchester (reduced price of £15 plus EventBrite fees). We will cover improved confidence on the bike, group riding, on the bike skills and finish with some top tips. You can sign up for the event here. We will have VeloSister in attendance on the day as well as Cyclefit Manchester and details will be issued to attendees nearer the time.


We’re also conscious about ensuring that we need to provide the correct level of racing for women who are keen to have a go but might not be too convinced that the deep end is where they want to dive in. With that in mind, we’ve teamed up with Cycle Sport Pendle who are running a 3rd and 4th category women’s race on 20 August at the Barrowford circuit, in Lancashire. Details of the race and how to enter can be found here.


We will be there on 20 August and as part of our drive to encourage women to have a go at racing, we will do a pre-race chat and post-race debrief with those riders who have attended one of our race training sessions in the past. There will be no cost for this aspect.


You don’t need to have a racing licence to enter the race, nor do you need to be a member of British Cycling (although we always recommend that you join British Cycling as either a Ride member (if you don’t intend to need a racing licence) or with Silver membership (if you fancy racing) because of the insurance and other member benefits).

For further information about racing and what to expect, check out my guide to women’s racing over on which can be accessed here.

We look forward to seeing you!
