Cycle Fit Chicks
A cycling club for women
“Where Beginner Cyclists are Welcomed & Experienced Cyclists are Challenged”
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.
The club provides a supportive and positive environment where women can become stronger and more confident cyclists.
We offer a range of programs and clinics to help women develop and refine their cycling skills and knowledge.
We focus on providing our members with a wide variety of mostly recreational cycling on road bikes on a combination of bike paths and quiet roads. While we like to challenge ourselves, we like to have fun too!
Over 700 women from the Ottawa/Gatineau area have been club members since 2008.
During the cycling season, we offer programs such as the introductory “Learn to Group Ride” clinics, bike maintenance clinics and weekly cycling skills development training.
Our Group Ride Program offers a schedule of weekly rides for cyclists at 4 levels – Beginner, Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced.
We encourage members to take advantage of opportunities to try out new experiences such as riding in a time trial and participating in some of the great cycling events that take place.
Join us if you are interested in becoming a better, more confident cyclist.
If you’re curious about this women’s only cycling club and what it can offer you, please join us at 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 about the club’s programs and events, and shop for cycling gear. There are also lots of great door prizes to be won.
If you decide to join the club, you can register during the evening.
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.
As part of our social activities. the club holds an annual Season Wrap Up event to recognize the hard work and accomplishments of our members and to celebrate the season’s many successes.
