Inaugural NZ Women's Cycling Festival

PRESS RELEASE- Inaugural NZ Women's Cycling Festival
18-22 October, Wellington

Hey There,

We're super proud to launch the 1st ever Women's Cycling Festival in Wellington from 18-22 October. Help us spread the word about this five day affair being hosted by a collaboration of several very keen, passionate cycling clubs in Wellington including:

-Revolve Cycling Club
-Frocks on Bikes
-Wellington MTB Club
-En Velo
-Cycle Aware Wellington
-Wellington Bike Polo

Kicking off this amazing weekend is a backstreet Cycle Chic fashion parade and the launch of the Kennett Brother's new book: Muddy Olympians. There’s the Women of Dirt (a six hour mountain bike solo or relay event), a road cycling peaks challenge, skills sessions for all forms of riding, bike polo, a movie night, a bike WOF, yoga for cyclists, MTB shuttling, and a bike bambinos creche for those with young riders in tow.

If all of that’s not reason enough to visit the Coolest little Capital in the World, come for the world-class coffee at the Frocknic on the last day, followed by the Closing Ceremony.

The festival celebrates the renaissance of women on all types of bikes. This festival is a celebration of healthy, diverse and vibrant women out to have a jollie good time.

While the WCF will be held for the first time in Wellington, the national festival is hoping to attract riders from all corners of the country. For those travelling from outside the city, billeting arrangements may be available, contact us for more information. And for 2013, watch out - WCF might be coming to a town near you!

So, whether you’re a fashionista, a mud addict, a tar baby or a Courtenay Place cruiser, come along and enjoy the camaradarie of the inaugural New Zealand Women’s Cycling Festival. October 18 - 22.
