A cycling club for women
“Where Beginner Cyclists are Welcomed & Experienced Cyclists are Challenged”
CycleFitCHICKS was founded in 2008 by Sylvie D’Aoust, a Chelsea/Ottawa area cyclist. The club is a place where women and girls can share their love for cycling in a safe, friendly, encouraging environment.
In light of current guidelines from public health authorities regarding COVID-19, upcoming Cyclefit Chicks activities scheduled for Spring 2020, including the April Spring Social, Learn to Ride and Bike Maintenance Clinics, Monday Night Skills sessions and Group Rides are postponed until further notice. Please check this website regularly for up-to-date information and revised dates.
ABOUT CYCLEFIT CHICKS (CFC)
CFC is a club where women share their love for cycling in a safe, friendly, encouraging environment. We provide a positive atmosphere where women can become stronger and more confident cyclists. We offer mainly recreational road bike cycling on bike paths and/or quiet roads.
While we like to challenge ourselves, we also like to have fun too! CFC social and cycling activities create a supportive network for women to find ways to engage with the cycling community..
We have programs, clinics events and challenges to help women develop and refine their cycling skills and knowledge, while promoting physical activity and the achievement of cycling goals.
Over 900 women from the Ottawa/Gatineau area have been club members since 2008.
