About The Club


CFC is a registered not-for-profit that is volunteer driven and
dependent –  from its Board to Group Ride Leaders to Social Event Coordinators.
It takes a lot of work to make this look as seamless as it does!

We welcome sponsors and partners.

CycleFit CHICKS is a road cycling club for women. It was founded in 2008 by Sylvie D’Aoust, a Chelsea/Ottawa area cyclist.


  • Create a safe, friendly and supportive environment where women could develop and grow as cyclists
  • Provide more cycling opportunities for female cyclists at the beginner through advanced levels


The club is a place where women of all ages can share their love of cycling, develop new skills, meet new challenges and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow club members.


“We need more women to feel comfortable on the bike and gain the confidence through skills clinics to be successful and comfortable competing in their first road race, or participating in longer tours”.


The club’s activities kick-off every April with the annual Spring Social. All cycling programs and activities launch in early May and wrap up at the end of September. The Season Wrap Up Social usually takes the third weekend of October.
