WOMEN AT SPR

Tour of Margaret River 2020

At SPR, we have a fantastic and varied group of women riders, with levels from coffee riders all the way through to National Championship level. The club is always looking for more women to come and join in on the fun.

If you are interested in trying any of our club rides, or are keen to start racing, and would like to speak to someone about it then send us an email: women@southperthrouleurs.com.au

SPR has recently formed a SPR Women’s Interests Sub Committee to assist the club in providing:

1. A friendly and accepting environment for women to start and progress in both recreational and competitive cycling.
2. Promote an environment where women can develop fitness and skill while promoting respect, camaraderie and enjoyment.
3. To welcome new female club members and assist them in their first few months at the club.
4. To develop platforms for social interaction across recreational and racing members so as to promote an all-inclusive club free of silos and promote regular women-only rides.

Overall, it is about helping SPR women see that it is easy being green 💚! One of the first initiatives being rolled out by the sub-committee is ‘Meet Our Women’. The initiative will see a couple of SPR women profiled each month. Please visit the SPR Chicks Facebook for the latest updates and meet our fabulous SPR Women’s Interests Sub Committee.
