About this blog

I started this women’s cycling blog because I genuinely love cycling and want to encourage other women (Australian and beyond) to become as obsessed as I am.

It’s not a feminist rant although it takes on that tone occasionally. I’m keen to include details about professional women cyclists who receive so little recognition compared to their male counterparts.

I’d love to hear from other women about their own cycling experience either via comments on individual blog posts or direct contact. I would welcome guest bloggers (posted at my discretion), suggestions of other links and general comments about how it could be improved.

I am happy to review products particularly those that are directed or designed specifically for women. I have no expectation that I will be provided products for free. I will give an honest and unbiased review of any product and will return any products after the review if requested.

The opinions expressed in this women’s cycling blog are my own but I’d love to hear the opinions of others in the comments.

  • I finally got the chance to sit down properly and have a look at your blog. Awesome work – seems like you are a pro now :)

  • Great tips and good on you for taking the cycling challenge. I’m a Perth girl now after leaving Sydney in 2008 as a ‘new’ cyclist. 5 years later I’m a devotee who cycles regularly, participates in events, and has the odd crack at racing. If any of you sydney girls are visiting Perth with your bikes, we have a Facebook group called the ‘flaming foxes’. It’s designed to connect and support women about all things cycling irrespective of whether you cycle for fun, transport or to compete. Foxes are located across Wa and include roadies, trackies, and mountain bikers.

    This is fantastic !!! I have been looking for cycling just for women and about cycling directed just for women. This about our enjoyment of cycling and the issues we face about our love of cycling.

    Thank You


  • Great to find a spot where women can talk cycling from a female perspective – well done Nic! When I started cycling in ’87 in Ireland I was the only female cyclist in the club! I’m glad there’s a few more of us around now. I’m training for the 160km Ring of Kerry Sportive in 2015 – looking forward to it

  • Hi Nic, I just discovered your blog and whilst not a road rider I am a tourer having just completed a 7000 km trip from Darwin to Perth with detours and the South West of WA. Cycle touring is amazing. We (hubby and I ) only met other male tourers and while being told about women along the way they sadly seemed few and far between. As an older woman I would certainly encourage cycling for health, joy, strength and fitness.

  • I would love to see more women in cycling. I just completed the Three Peaks Challenge 2015 in Victoria and sadly only 5% of the 1,900 rider field were women. It was such a beautiful course and a great challenge – it would be fantastic to see more ladies on the slopes.

    Nicola you were right, I did get up those hills on Sunday with the Gong. Thanks for telling me I would when I didn’t think I could. Many males on the ride so it did feel good to be amongst them (and overtake) them if I could be so cheeky. Thankyou to my male team members though who were so supportive and encouraging on what was a great ride.
