#FridayRideday

As the name says, we ride every Friday.

We have two start times: 08h30 and 10h00. There is no difference in the groups, other than the start time.

Our group is everything from nervous novices to very experienced. We generally break into groups of similar ability on the morning, to make sure everyone is comfortable and doesn’t get left behind. Going forward, this will be a group of 6, to ensure we can still manage social distancing. If someone in the group punctures, the whole group stops and mucks in. If you don’t know how to change a tube, at least make sure you have the supplies (spare tube, tyre levers, CO2 cartridge and/or pump.

You are welcome to join the What’s app group, using the QR code (simply take a photo of it with your iphone or scan it with a QR code reader app)

It’s a sociable space and a friendly and welcoming group. Every Wednesday, we send out the route plan (distance, climbing, start point, coffee stop etc). At that stage, let us know on the group if you are joining us. You also need to join the Bia Cycling Club on Strava (no charge) and download the route for the week to make sure you have it to follow.

If you’re fairly new, join our “Charlie’s Angels” group – Charlie will settle you in, get you confident on the road, and in a group, explain some road etiquette and generally be amazing. Once you’re confident, you are then more than welcome to join the other groups.

If you ride with us, and join the conversation more regularly, you are encouraged to join the Bia Cycling Club. For £89, you get a club jersey, water bottle, free personalised Ice ID and an organised ride AT LEAST every week of the year, if not more! We have fun activities planned, and you always get first bite at the cherry.

Anything else concerning you? Let us know.

Join Bia and Ice ID for a weekly women’s specific ride every friday morning.

Riding is a great way to meet people, get to know friends old and new, and just have fun really. We organize regular rides in the UK as well as South Africa. Enjoy a lovely morning on your bike with other women, spending time doing what we love: riding, chatting and having coffee and cake! The ride is free, just bring some cash for the spoils at the cafe stop. All levels welcome and we encourage and welcome all beginners. We’ll also host regular workshops & evenings to help you along the way, all while enjoying each other’s company. If you’d like to join one of these rides, follow us on social media, or get in touch so we can keep you up to date of all the happenings.

Charlie's Angels

A career public servant, Charlie’s service to the community hasn’t ended upon her retirement from decades with the Thames Valley Police. Having joined the Police at the tender age of 19, with an aim to serve and protect, Charlie enjoyed the team aspect of her day to day service.

May this year brought about Charlie’s retirement from the force, freeing up some time to spend doing something else she loves: riding her bike.

Fondly known as “Charlie Charlie”, her warm, supportive and caring nature has positioned Charlie perfectly for her new role in welcoming ‘newbies’ and novices to the Bia #FridayRidedays. There is no such thing as a ‘stupid question’ and Charlie’s gentle way makes ladies feel very welcome and comfortable in joining the crew.
