A new Swindon based mountain biking group, which meets on Facebook and gets together for ladies-only rides, now attracts a growing number of riders from across the South of England.
Formed by Sarah Selwood, from Purton, below, the Facebook group exchanges women specific information about equipment, clothing and interesting places to ride and also provides a place to post details of group rides and spontaneous get-togethers.
Sarah said: “Women have particular cycling requirements and I felt there was a need to create a place to share information and invitations to get out and enjoy mountain biking together.
“We’ve held two group rides so far, one at Swinley Forest and the other in the Forest of Dean, both of which were hugely successful and brought together women from along the M4 corridor and as far away as London. If you ride a mountain bike, we’d love to hear from you.”
