What the riders said


I really appreciated the support of the women’s community on my first ever Great Vic Bike Ride. I wasn’t confident to sign up for the ride alone, and I couldn’t encourage any friends to get on board with me. So when I saw there was the support of this womens group available I jumped at the opportunity.

I went along to a training ride and it was so nice to meet other like-minded riders. I also got some really good cycling tips as I am not a big road cyclist. The event was so much fun and I’d encourage anyone not too sure to join in with this amazing supportive group of girls!

I participated in my first Great Vic Bike Ride as a solo entrant, and the Women’s Community made it just a wonderful experience. Aside from loving the event itself, I became part of a community of friendly, active women, who supported each other at every turn both on the road and at the camp site.

There was always someone to ride with, eat with, join a queue with, celebrate with, and just have fun with. I came away with new friends, new riding buddies, new knowledge, and feeling so happy to have been part of this community within a community.
