Welcome to Cycle Fit Chicks
An Ottawa based cycling group for women
CycleFit CHICKS 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.
We offer programs year-round ranging from introductory cycling skills clinics, “Learn to Group Ride” and bike maintenance clinics all the way to advanced fitness and racing plans. Our Group Ride Program offers scheduled rides for cyclists at 4 levels – Beginner, Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced. This is a club where both recreational riders and ladies who are interested in racing can learn, grow and become more confident and accomplished cyclists.
If you’re curious about this women’s only cycling club and what it can offer you as a beginner or an experienced cyclist, please come to our Spring Social, held annually in April. This info session is the best way to find out more about the club, meet other women who are interested in cycling, hear presentations on the club’s programs and events, and shop for cycling gear. It’s a relaxing and fun evening where you can enjoy a glass of wine and have an amazing wrap or dessert while finding out what you want to know about the club. If you decide to join the club, you can register during the evening. And there are door prizes because we are so much more than just a cycling club!
We are a club that strives to keep our members physically active and support them in achieving their cycling goals. We want to create a supportive network of women who love to ride and find ways to engage with the cycling community at large. The club holds an annual end-of-season event where recognition of club members’ hard work and accomplishments – based on participation, volunteerism or logging a lot of kms – is given and the season’s successes are celebrated.
