the starting point on your cycling journey

Propello is proud to be supporting and developing Womens’ Cycling in Devon. We are committed to lifting the profile of womens’ cycling and making it accessible and inclusive. We provide a safe and friendly environment for women to cycle for fun, cycle for fitness or cycle for specific training goals.

From advice about what first bike to buy to developing Individual Training programmes using cutting edge technology, Propello will look after you all the way.

There are groups that run on a Wednesday and Saturday from Carb Cycles in Barnstaple as well as private coaching for those that want a more personal session, either individually or in a small group, to work on specific elements of their cycling. In addition we use the Propello Omnium indoor training studio when the weather is too bad to ride outside.

  1. The Flat White – this group is designed for complete beginners or ladies who want to get back into cycling and lack confidence riding on the roads. Delivered as 3 month courses we will teach you all the basic cycling skills, starting in traffic free environments. We will also teach you how to take care of your bike, mend a puncture, and generally be self sufficient on the bike.
  2. The Macchiato  – a little stronger, these ladies are mostly on road bikes focusing on improving riding skills, bike handling and developing fitness so that they can take part in Sportives and Charity Rides. Typical ride 20-25 miles.
  3. The Espresso – definitely strong, these ladies are all on road bikes and have mastered the basic skills and riding techniques and are now more focused on performance, more advanced group riding and training for longer or faster events. Typical ride 30-35 miles

All groups are guided by qualified cycling instructors.
