A SOCIAL cycling program for women is about to start in Joondalup .
Run by Cycling Australia, She Rides aims to help women regain cycling skills, improve their fitness and create a local social network.
Sorrento resident Sally Woodhead and Joondalup’s Fred Janssen are running the eight-week program at Lake Joondalup and Hillarys Boat Harbour.
The aim is to give participants the skills and confidence needed to ride on bike paths and in low-traffic environments.
Ms Woodhead took part in the sessions in 2015.
She enjoyed it so much she became a coach last year.
“I am so passionate about riding and the positive impact it has had on my life, so I am thrilled to have the opportunity to help other women start their journey,” she said.
The program is held on Saturdays from 8am to 10am, starting March 18.
It costs $179 and includes a three-month Cycling Australia membership.
There is also a basics option for people needing more help, which includes three on-hour private lessons and membership for $269.
