Women's Ride Guide
Why Do You Ride?
Because it’s great for your heart (and soul), and easy on your knees and joints? Because it’s a beautiful way to be social, explore your neighborhood, and see the world? Because it allows you to soak up the sun, fill your lungs with fresh air, and escape the gym? Because it does incredible things to your calves, quads, and glutes? The reasons to ride are countless, but the keys to successful riding are short and sweet.
RIDE A BIKE BUILT FOR YOU
From your unique proportions to your personal riding preferences, there isn’t one women’s bicycle that fits all. Fortunately, we have a variety of options - for beginners and competitors, for the road and the dirt - that have all been designed and refined specifically for you.
WHAT TO WEAR
Cycling apparel is packed with unique features, including jerseys with rear pockets (to keep your essentials within reach but out of the way while you’re in riding position) and gloves with gel padding (to reduce pressure on your ulnar nerve and improve circulation). Our women’s cycling apparel also features this season’s hottest colors and most flattering fits. From tops and gloves to socks and shoes, we have gear expertly designed for your body and your style.
BUILD A COMMUNITY
Connect with other women who ride. You’ll enjoy riding more with friends, you’ll ride more often when you commit to riding with a group, and you’ll get more out of training if you find a few competitive cycling partners. Feel better, ride more, and explore every day. Ask us about our group rides and social events and start growing your own cycling community.
FROM THE BOTTOM UP
If there’s one thing that can make or break a ride, it’s a pair of cycling shorts. Leave discomfort and numbness behind forever with the perfect pair of women’s shorts, featuring an ergonomically accurate chamois (also known as super comfortable padding), construction that’s both flattering and supportive, and an inseam length to match your personal preference. Spin class to century ride - we’ve got you covered.
Your saddle is the most personal and perhaps the most important component on your bicycle. Despite popular belief, more isn’t better when it comes to padding and comfort for bike saddles. We have a selection of women-specific designs that provide comfort along with proper skeletal support, ensuring that your time on the bike is much more enjoyable. Available in a variety of widths, we can help you choose a saddle that’s ideal for you.
FUEL YOUR FITNESS
Cycling is one (amazing) part of taking care of yourself. It’s part of the bigger picture - a healthy, happy you. Slow down and stretch - your body and your mind will thank you. Eat right - fuel every day with real foods like fruits and veggies and lean protein. Be prepared on every ride - carry packaged nutrition and plenty of fluids. Ride, recover, refuel, and ride - and rely on us to be your resource.
