In February 2011 we were 7 women and by Sunday 4th September 2011, 100 women and the bicycles changed cycling in the North West forever - 100 women gathered together to ride their bikes in the Manchester 100 Sportive. This was a charity ride and we had as an ambition to raise £100 each, a grand total of £10k for Christies. Since then we have had at least one group ride a week and often more. We take part in numerous sportives and organise our own tours - Anglesey, Yorkshire Dales, Lands End to John O'Groats, Way of the Roses plus an annual trip to Majorca. We also hold non-cycling socials so riders from all levels can get together.
Rides are lead by volunteers and we are always keen to recruit more. We offer a subsidised training course to aspiring ride leaders and to help members develop their confidence. Bike maintenance courses are also available.
Team Glow is more than just a cycling club … it is a network of cycling for women offering opportunities to develop yourself as cyclist and support other women .
