Before joining WMNride, Marie only rode her bike for commuting and small touring trips. Road cycling was something completely different and new – and intimidating. Luckily the WMNride members were very supportive and helped her successfully complete her first afterwork group ride in October 2020. Since then, she’s never looked back and just kept on pedalling.
Riding with the WMNride community motivated her to keep growing and improving, and inspired her and Alison to start the Casual Cycling Club to help more women ride – no matter the fitness level, body-size or bike. Marie is one of the most dedicated WMNriders you’ll meet: every week she’s travelling around the country to give her energy and support to other community members and newbies, whilst still working hard on her own riding skills.
