Queensbury Queens of the Mountain
A group for ladies who are interested in getting in the saddle for some social cycling. Come along and see if it’s for you.
We welcome riders of all abilities, but please note that we do not offer coaching – individuals are responsible for their own safety on the roads. Ride leaders do not necessarily hold ride leader/coaching qualifications, but are more experienced riders who are volunteering to ride a route with the company of others. They are primarily responsible for being familiar with and navigating the route, and we have a ‘no one gets dropped’ policy – we won’t leave you behind (all of that aside, of course you will be supported and have the opportunity to ask advice and learn from more experienced riders!).
