Welcome to the first ever NZ Women's Cycling Festival!
In an explosion of all things biking - the inaugural Women’s Cycling Festival, held in Wellington this Labour Weekend, brings together the stylish, the muddy and the quick!
This five day affair is being hosted by a collaboration of several very keen, passionate cycling clubs in Wellington:
-Frocks on Bikes
-Wellington MTB Club
-Cycle Aware Wellington
Kicking off with an opportunity to bring your own style to a backstreet Cycle Chic fashion parade, the programme has something for everyone. There’s the Women of Dirt (a six hour mountain bike solo or relay event), a road cycling peaks challenge, skills sessions for all forms of riding, bike polo, a movie night, a bike WOF, yoga for cyclists, MTB shuttling, and a bike bambinos creche for those with young riders in tow. If all of that’s not reason enough to visit the Coolest Capital in the World, come for the world-class coffee at the Frocknic on the last day, followed by the Closing Ceremony.
While the WCF will be held for the first time in Wellington, the national festival is hoping to attract riders from all corners of the country. For those travelling from outside the city, billeting arrangements may be available, contact us for more information. And for 2013, watch out - WCF might be coming to a town near you!
So, whether you’re a fashionista, a mud addict, a tar baby or a Courtenay Place cruiser, come along and enjoy the camaradarie of the inaugural New Zealand Women’s Cycling Festival. October 18 - 22.
We'll see you there!
