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.
