This Girl Can 2021 - Made with PosterMyWall

EUREKA Cycling is excited to announce a FREE event for women.
JOIN in the fun of our ROAD CYCLING event. NOT a race!
FREE morning tea after the event.
FREE prize draws for This Girl Can participants!!!

Eureka Cycling were proud to host a road cycling event for This Girl Can WEEK in Ballarat, on Sunday 28th March.
The event was advertised as…
Suitable for women aged 18 and older with moderate fitness level.
Ride distance will be minimum 20 Km and maximum 45 Km depending on the individual.
Experienced road cyclists will be on hand to offer guidance, coaching and tips to improve your time on the bike.

Thirteen riders joined in the social ride which was staged concurrently with a Eureka club race.  Riders hailed from near and far to ride in perfect temperature and sunshine.
Local residents from Learmonth and Burrumbeet participated, having been inspired by watching Eureka riders race past their houses.  Ballarat cafe bunches were represented with riders from both The Hummingbirds and The Goddesses.
Other riders have just commenced their cycling journey and were seeking tips and coaching from the event.

Two groups were established to help cater for the vast array of experience that the riders presented.
Former Eureka members – Gail Oliver and Veronica Micich – kindly assisted Eureka to deliver the event by performing Road Captain roles and managing the groups.

The event started from the Eureka club rooms on the east foreshore of Lake Learmonth with a warm up ride out to the start/finish line of the Eureka club race.
The two groups then set off for laps of a square shaped 6 kilometre circuit – which included a downhill leg along a section of the Ballarat Avenue of Honour.
Gail guided the advanced and intermediate riders around the circuit. They concentrated on bunch riding and using the wind and geography to their advantage.
Veronica coached the novice and beginner riders. They concentrated on cycling techniques including gear shifting, cornering and pacing.

After riding multiple laps of the circuit, the groups reformed for the ride back to the club rooms which mostly had a tail breeze all the way back.
At the club rooms a generous spread had been prepared and was enjoyed by all.  A random draw was held and a few lucky riders won prizes.
Laughter was had, details were shared, friends were made and the roots of a new cycling group was sown.

Eureka gratefully thanks Gail and Veronica for providing superb guidance for this event. Their cycling knowledge and dedication to spreading the joy of cycling was well received by all participants.

Stories from the day:

Shelley is a novice bike racer and was keen to pick up some new racing tips. Initially signed up for the This Girl Can event, Shelley ended up deciding to race in the Division 4 race. Finding herself riding solo, Shelley was eventually caught by Gail and her troup of faster riders. Taking Shelley under their wing, they coached her through the race. Gail even instructed Shelley how and when to sprint for the finish flag.
Invaluable race craft for Shelley, courtesy of Gail.

Nury lives in Adelaide and has only recently taken up road cycling. Nury saw the This Girl Can RIDE a BIKE @ EUREKA advertising online and decided to embark on a drive to Ballarat!
Yes, Nury and partner Steven, drove to Ballarat on Saturday, so that Nury could take part in our This Girl Can event!
In just her fourth ride using cleats, Nury was looking for as much information on how to ride a road bike. Veronica was on hand to coach Nury how and when to change gears, how to ride in the bunch and how to “unclip” when coming to a stop.
Essential cycling tips for Nury, courtesy of Veronica!
