Part of our Women Ride series, encouraging women to get on their bikes. Designed to downscale some of the factors often cited by women as barriers to cycling, expect confidence-boosting support, a friendly non-competitive atmosphere and the buzz of completing a great day or weekend on the bike. This fabulous weekend is set in the beautiful chalk downs and valleys around Salisbury and the New Forest, and offers two wonderful day-rides – choose your day! Or take advantage of the opportunity to ride consecutive days – the perfect way to test your stamina for multi-day riding, and really put your skills into practice.
The varied cycling combines a mix of terrain from flat roads to a range of climbs and descents, and is carefully designed to help you to gauge your fitness and progress, boost your confidence and improve your cycling skills under the guidance of experienced leaders. We also incorporate basic bike maintenance skills to further boost independence and confidence.
- This Training Weekend is included in the cost of Women Ride London to Paris and Women Ride London to Bruges Cycles.
- If you register for a Women Ride multi-day challenge ride first, you will receive a code to register for the weekend for free.

Your safety, and that of the rest of the group, is our highest priority. Our trips are designed and planned with safety in mind. Your crew will be equipped with communication devices (eg phones, radios and/or emergency satellite phones), medical kit and other safety apparatus appropriate to the destination. Our leaders always have access to our 24-hour emergency UK back-up. They are responsible for safety on the trip, and will make any changes to the itinerary they deem necessary, should local conditions dictate. Pre-trip administration - such as medical questionnaires and travel insurance as appropriate - is all done with your safety in mind.
We plan our trips around the optimal weather conditions, but could still be exposed to bad weather at any time. It is vital you are prepared for all conditions. We provide you with a detailed packing kit-list on registration, as well as details on useful discounts you are entitled to as a Discover Adventure customer. We are always available if you need advice.
If you are still to buy some kit don’t forget that Cotswold Outdoor, Snow and Rock, Cycle Surgery and Runners Need offer all Discover Adventure participants 15% off any purchases you make with them. Please ask us for the code if you do not have this already.
