Velo club wants women to come and try cycling

THE Optus Nowra Velo Club is hosting a women’s and girls’ come and try cycling morning.

This morning is part of the Shoalhaven City Council’s Shoalhaven Women in Sport come and try sessions for many sports throughout the month of March this year. 

The cycling come and try morning will be held on March 16 starting from Cumberland Drive and Tom Thumb Avenue in the Flinders Industrial Complex, South Nowra.

The women’s and girls’ come and try morning will follow a competition by registered members of the Nowra Velo Club on the Flinders circuit. 

The session is timed to run between 9am and 11am. 

Interested women and girls should have a roadworthy bike, preferably a road bike and an Australian Standard Approved helmet to take part in this session.

The Optus Nowra Velo Club is the Shoalhaven area’s local cycling club and caters for those interested in road cycling from ages 12 and up.  

The women and girls of the Optus Nowra Velo Club include the 18-year-old Jade Colligan and Tarni Cunningham, elite level cyclist Alexis Barnes, junior under 17 girls Brittanee Schinella, Libby Randall, Georgia Mason, Abby Johns and Courtney Harrison, along with masters women Mel Kilby, Kate Darke, Kim Waters, Theresa McLachlan, Michelle Harris and Ingrid Holland.

Some of these members have achieved at state and masters levels but the main focus of the Optus Nowra Velo Club is activity within the Shoalhaven City Council area.

Women of any age and stage in their life can enjoy cycling, as long as you have a roadworthy bike, an Australian Standard helmet, comfortable clothes and a safe place to ride.

It is an excellent way to get fit as it is a low impact exercise. You can cycle by yourself, with a friend or in a group.
