Women on Wheels (WOW) is an informal group of female cyclists that get together to share their passion for cycling. On Wednesday evenings from May until October, we cycle the 42 km loop in the Gatineau Park. We meet at 6pm (May-August) or earlier (Sept-Oct) in the Gamelin parking lot - located at the entrance to the Gatineau Park.

WOW is about encouraging women to sweat now and age later! Last year we had a core group of 30 women who regularly came out to ride on Wednesday nights. To keep the groups manageable we will divide into 3-4 groups or packs of women of similar speeds. Those of you who are more experienced riders should help out the newer or less experienced women cyclists in proper group riding technique and etiquette - safety is the most important thing here! After the ride there is the opportunity to rehydrate and refuel at "Le Twist" in Hull. So bring a change of clothes if you plan on hanging out after - otherwise you will get a chill.

The recommendations for riding with this informal group are as follows:

  • you need to know how to change a flat;
  • you need to ride with a spare tire, pump, full water bottle and a small snack (if needed); and
  • you do NOT ride in the pack on tri-bars.

Other than that, you will need a pair of willing legs and lungs that can manage an average pace of 25 km/hour on the flats, a heart and soul that love being taken out for a ride in the beautiful Gats, and a bike with a helmet covered brain :-) NO EXCEPTIONS!
