Team Glow is a women's cycling group and network based in Greater Manchester and the North West.
Our aim is to bring women together and get out riding our bikes. We cater for women who are interested in road cycling - everyday cyclists, aspiring racers and happy tourers. You can find out more on our Facebook page and our rides/events are on Meet Up - you will need to be a member of Meet Up to access our rides.
As well as weekly road rides, we take part in sportives and organise our own tours - Anglesey, Yorkshire Dales, Lands End to John O'Groats, Way of the Roses plus an annual trip to abroad e.g. Mallorca. We also hold non-cycling socials including meeting up for drinks, meals and a Christmas fancy dress ride..
All rides are lead by volunteer ride leaders. We offer training to aspiring leaders and to help members develop their confidence. Bike maintenance is also available.
We welcome guests on both Facebook and Meetup - so sign up, come along and see if you like us, then join us as a member. We have over 100 paying members with +1000 followers on Facebook.
We welcome anyone who identifies as a woman, regardless of age, disability, ethnic origin, religion or belief, sexual orientation, marital status or nationality. We ask that all members of our community respect this ethos and each other.If you would like to discuss any issue relating to Glow, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our motto - 'Give what you can, take what you need'
Team Glow is more than just a cycling club … it is a cycling network for women offering opportunities to develop yourself as cyclist and support other women. We asked members what made Glow GLOW, their response - 'the company, the sun, the countryside, the smiles, the feel good factor and women supporting women'. I would add it’s the satisfaction of knowing that every time you pedal out it’s another bid for freedom on the roads and equality in the sport. - Glynis Francis, Team Glow founder.
