One of the best ways to encourage and promote women in cycling is to have a good old fashioned get together. Last week, Alf Jones Cycles hosted a women’s VIP evening at their store in North Wales which saw an amazing turnout of brands, and enthusiastic female cyclists.
Earlier this year, the Wrexham based bike shop was awarded the Strongher seal of approval for being a female friendly bike shop. Since then, they’ve been working hard to promote women in riding by co-hosting the Ride Out Wales day with Juliana Bicycles and organising female bike mechanic classes.
Their most recent women’s event took place last week, an evening to celebrate women’s cycling. The aim was to bring female cyclists and brand names together to socialise, share stories, discuss products and encourage more women to give cycling a go.
