London Dynamo Women

London Dynamo prides itself on being a vibrant, friendly and inclusive cycling club, committed to fostering a diverse and welcoming community.

Our women's section is a core part of our club which continues to grow and flourish, offering a range of engaging activities exclusively for women members. From open days and ride-outs to informative skills sessions, social gatherings and an annual training camp abroad - there's something for everyone.

Many of our women cyclists get involved in racing both on the road, at criteriums and on Zwift. However, being a racer is not a requirement to join and enjoy being part of our club. Many other members prefer the more relaxed and social side of our rides or opt for our coaching sessions available throughout the warmer months.

At both ends of the riding spectrum, there exists a common desire among our members to improve and have fun. This collective aim serves to enhance our safety, proficiency and enjoyment as riders. We embrace riders of all backgrounds at varying experience levels and with a range of personal goals. Whether you prefer women-only events or mixed group rides, the choice is yours. Explore 'Our Rides' section for more details on what we offer and join us on the journey to new cycling adventures.

For more information or if you have any further questions, please contact our Women's Captain. If you are ready to join, click on the Join Us page for instructions.



Is the women’s section a separate membership?

All of our members are part of the same mixed-gender club and we ride and socialise in mixed-gender groups the majority of the time. However, we recognise that cycling is a male-dominant sport which may create a barrier to entry and/or engagement in our rides and socials for those who do not identify as male. It is therefore important to us to occasionally create spaces for those to ride and socialise separately to the men. We aim to have a smaller selection of women-only rides and social events, and we also organise a women’s cycling camp abroad once per year.

Do you organise women-only rides?

Yes, please see Our Rides for more detail.

Are there also mixed-gender rides?

Yes, aside from racing, anyone is welcome to ride in our usual club rides/events in mixed-gender groups and this forms the majority of our organised rides.

Do you have women specific Training Camps?

We have a women-only cycling camp each year abroad, usually in April, which is a mix of training rides and socialising. The cut-off to sign up is often around 6 months before, but this can be discussed with our Women’s Captain if you are interested in going.

Do the women have a racing team?

Yes, we have a core women’s racing team of Cat 1-3 riders who target National Level Races and also many women who race just for fun. If you are interested in racing, just let our Women’s Captain know when you join the club and she can put you in touch with the Women’s Race Team Lead and add you to any relevant groups.

Can I ride socially but not race?

Yes, the majority of our membership do not race and prefer to go on training rides or social rides. The choice is yours!

How can I improve my riding skills?

All our rides will give you an opportunity to improve your riding. Most members will be happy to give you support and guidance if you ask. We encourage all riders to attend our novice race training days in the Spring/Summer – these days are well worth doing even if you have no intention of racing. Throughout the Summer, the club hires a British Cycling certified coach for mid-week sessions in Richmond Park which are also a great way of improving your skills and fitness.

Who can I talk to about London Dynamo?

We are very happy to answer any questions. Please email our Women's Captain.
