We don’t love to acknowledge the fact – but unfortunately winter is coming. To help riders out as they make the transition, Specialized have launched a new series of women’s evenings called ‘Ride Into Winter’.
The series consists of ten events across the country, taking place at Specialized concept stores. Experts will provide information to help women tackle the coming conditions in a female friendly environment that also allows local women to identify and meet each other (instead of superstitiously stalking on Strava whilst thinking ‘if only we could be ride buddies!’)
The evenings will include talks and demonstrations around:
- Essential winter maintenance
- Clothing and layering advice for changing conditions
- Injury prevention in cold weather and at home exercises to keep fit
Each event is free, and the first 50 women to sign up will receive an exclusive goodie bag. Everyone will get a glass of bubbly, and there will be snacks to keep you going too.
Women’s only store evenings have proved hugely popular in the past – they provide women with a great meeting place and an opportunity to talk saddles, chamois and bike maintenance in a female dominated environment. Which is really rather nice.
Dates and locations are as follows:
Tuesday 18th – Harrogate
Wednesday 19th – Chester
Tuesday 1st – Stafford
Wednesday 2nd – Nottingham
Tuesday 8th – Newbury
Wednesday 9th – Bristol
Thursday 10th – Plymouth
Tuesday 15th – Birmingham
Wednesday 16th – Ruislip
Thursday 17th – Chelmsford
