To help you plan out your Spring and Summer riding below is an outline of our planned Velo Fille events for the season. While not every event will suit every rider we look forward to seeing you at one of these events or the regular Wednesday morning ride in the coming months.
Rookie Program – October
Our Rookie Program is for the new or near-new rider that is looking to build their skills and confidence on the road. It is a three week program with sessions each Sunday 11am-12pm. This program does not require a road bike but it is recommended. The program will run from October 2nd until 16th. It is limited to 6 riders.
CX Ride – November
For those that love a little adventure there will be a dedicated Velo Fille gravel ride taking in some of the beautiful back roads of Gippsland. While this ride will offer some challenging climbs it will also provide spectacular views that you may otherwise never see. This ride does require a dedicated cyclocross (CX) or gravel bike. The ride will be on Sunday,13th November and will be limited to 10 riders.
Road Skills Clinic – December
Looking to get smoother, faster or safer on your road bike? Then this event is for you.

We recommend this event for all riders irrespective of experience level. This date will be confirmed soon.
Ride Like A Girl – January
Have a friend you would like to introduce to cycling in a safe, friendly and fun environment? Ride Like A Girl is aimed at getting EVERY woman on a bike irrespective of fitness, bike or skill. Bring your friend, mum, nanna, kids, whoever you can find. Our Ride Like A Girl event is about introducing as many women as possible to the simple joy and freedom of just getting on a bike and riding. The ride itself is on bike paths and has no time limit or dress code. It will be on Sunday 22nd January.
The Velo Fille Big Weekend – February
Our most anticipated event of the season is our weekend trip away. This year our Big Weekend will be at Hepburn Springs in the Daylesford region February 17th -19th. While we go for the riding this trip is also a great chance to get away and enjoy each others company. There will be great riding, fine food, a few drinks and a little yoga. This trip is limited to 18 riders. We recommend booking as early as possible as this event is always sold out.
MTB Fun Day – March
Add a little spice and adventure into your riding experiences with our mountain biking fun day. Accompanied by a highly experienced mountain biking instructor we aim to learn some new skills, add some variety to our cycling and have a load of fun. While this event will require a dedicated mountain bike we will have bikes for hire on the day for those that do not already have a mountain bike. We recommend this ride for all riders. This date will be confirmed soon.
