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 2 classes that run on a Wednesday Morning from Carb Cycles in Barnstaple. In addition we use the Carb indoor training studio when the weather is too bad to ride outside.

  1. The 09:15 Flat White Club – this group is made up of ladies riding mainly hybrid bikes. The route for this group will be ‘relatively’ flat and we will focus on developing cycling skills in a variety of situations and improving fitness. It is a nice relaxed social ride which finishes at Carb Cycles for a coffee and chat.
  2. The 09:15 Macchiato Club – a little stronger, these ladies are mostly on road bikes.The route for this group will alternate between being ‘relatively’ flat, undulating and hilly. We will focus on improving riding skills, bike handling and developing fitness. It is a ride focused more on improving technique and fitness but is still fun and ends with a coffee at Carb.

All classes are led by a fully qualified cycling instructor.

Flat White: 09:15 – 11:15
Macchiato: 09:15 – 11:15

Womens Sportive Squad

We are delighted to announce that new for 2017 we have set up a Womens Sportive Training Squad to help women train for their first, or one of their first, Sportives. This is a natural follow on from our Wednesday rides where we help relative beginners gain confidence with their cycling by improving skills, road awareness and riding in groups. For 2017 we have selected three events to take part in. The Exmoor Beauty, The Smuggler and the Velociraptor, all challenging but achievable local events.
