Liverpool Loopline Ladies Cycling
Liverpool Loopline Ladies Cycling are a Cycling UK affiliated group.
We are based, as our name suggests, in Liverpool and use National Cycle Route 62 (NCR62 - part of TPT) - also known as Liverpool Loopline - as our primary place to ride. It is nice and flat, straight and traffic-free, with the advantage that it can be accessed in lots of locations across the City running North to South from Aintree to Halewood.
Formed in May 2017, we aim to provide a fun & sociable women-only group for ladies to gain confidence riding their bike perhaps, like a lot of the women in the group, after not having ridden a bike for many years.
We hold regular organised rides of different durations, and on different days & times of the week (see Facebook group for info). We also encourage women to ride spontaneously and not just wait for organised rides - we want to create a bunch of 'cycling buddies' that you can give a 'shout-out' to and go cycling with anytime you feel like it!. We don't go fast, we don't ride against the clock, and we are not fussed what bike you have or what you wear! (As long as you are safe and comfortable.) Just come as you are........ and have fun and enjoy riding your bike again with a bunch of like-minded women.
A few of us are now gaining confidence to go a bit further afield and we have ventured off the Loopline, going up to Lydiate in Sefton using the Leeds-Liverpool canal tow path and also down to Speke and Otterspool in the South - with lots of coffee & cake stops on the way (we have occasionally been known to pop into a canal side pub too!).
Check out our Facebook group here for more information Hope to see you soon!
****NEWS*** In Oct 2018, Liverpool Loopline Ladies will be launching our women's cycling hub at Norris Green Park L11 courtesy of Friends of Norris Green Park and Cycling UK. See photo for more info,
We ride at least twice a month - usually at weekends (and evenings between March and October). Check out our Facebook group for more information https://www.facebook.com/groups/LivLooplineLadies/
Courtesy of a recent grant from Cycling UK, we also have four brand new women's hybrid bikes to borrow free of charge when you join one of our organised rides.
