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.
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.
PROGAMS & CLINICS
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.
Join us if you are interested in becoming a better, more confident cyclist.
EVENTS & CHALLENGES
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.
The club’s members participate in a variety of challenges and events throughout the cycling season to keep themselves motivated and to keep learning.
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 in the region.
ABOUT THE CLUB
We are a club that strives to keep our members physically active and support them in achieving their cycling goals.
The variety of social and cycling activities offered to members help to create a supportive network of women who love to ride and find ways to engage with the cycling community at large.
Taking the time to recognize and celebrate the hard work and accomplishments of our members throughout the season is also important to us and our year-end “Season Wrap Up” event features lots of prizes and awards along with many great stories and memories of good times and wonderful rides.
