She participated in Cycling Australia’s She Rides program last year and loved it so much she decided to become a coach, offering the confidence program at Lake Joondalup.

Ms Woodhead said she started cycling in 2012 to recover from a broken ankle.

“I was riding semi-regularly but didn’t feel very confident out on the roads,” she said.

She joined the program early last year and said she enjoyed being part of a riding group.

“There’s that freedom feeling when you get on a bike (and) when you combine that freedom feeling with being in a group of women, it’s amazing,” she said.

“I was so inspired that I then became a cycling coach to be able to help women get back on bikes, feel confident, build their riding skills, and have lots of laughs and make friends.”

The confidence program provides a revision of bike riding skills and will run on Saturday mornings at Lake Joondalup, starting April 2.

Together and confidence sessions also run on weekday mornings at Lake Goollelal and basic one-on-one training is available.
