I passed a womens club out by Frodsham the other week. I forget the name but they had cool kit.
In my old club women weren't even allowed to join until the 80s ! How mad is that ?
I like how it's all men answering, this what's wrong with women's cycling.
They have a handful of very committed ladies who organise all of this. I think that’s the key - some ladies feel intimidated by riding with men, many dont, but giving them an option of a slower ride or a ladies only ride if they want it seems to work. The organising ladies know what works and proceed accordingly.
Are they happy to reduce their speed to fit in with the advertised ride speed?
