In Edinburgh and at a loose end this evening? Pop along to the Alpine Bikes at Hamilton Place for their Ladies Night Out event.
Women’s only or women’s specific evenings have been proving increasingly popular over the last couple of years, with a growing number of bike shops and companies getting in on the act. They are a great opportunity to ask for advice, pick up useful tips, browse a store at your own pace and get information tailored to your needs.
This Ladies Night Out event is being run in conjunction with Trek bicycles, and the event will be hosted by none other than Chris Garrison, Trek’s Women’s Specific Designer and Total Women’s Cycling contributor. As you might expect, Chris has got a wealth of bicycling information to hand, and will be happy to answer whatever you throw her way.
She’ll be providing advice on a huge range of topics including nutrition, bike fitting, and how to get your bike as comfortable as possible. Since Chris’ post on choosing a women’s bike saddle is one of the most popular articles on Total Women’s Cycling, it’s safe to say she knows what she’s talking about here.
It's also a great chance to meet other riders, share experiences and generally enjoy the evening. Places are very limited, so make sure you call to check availability and book.
