Path 2 Road

In many cases, women who joined LBOYB began by brushing the cobwebs off their bike.  Now that they’ve taken a few classes and joined in the Social and path rides around Melbourne – they are wanting more!

So, we have introduced the Path to Road program (P2R), which develops their skills and confidence to broaden their cycling to include road riding.

The ‘Path 2 Road’ Program:  


  •  The next session will begin in July 2022.   Contact admin@ladiesbackonyourbike.com.au for further details
  • P2R is of 6 sessions duration.
  •  The skill component of each session is  held in a safe enclosed car park, at either,  Elwood or Brighton.  The rides will mainly be on Beach Road after initial sessions are held in the car park and on less busy roads.   In Bayside and Kingston Municipalities, Beach Road, is  free of parked cars, from 6am-10am on both Saturday’s and Sunday’s, which makes for a great place to cycle for our P2R sessions.
  • Other venues will include the Boulevard in Kew  and the car park and beyond near the Cerberus,  Black Rock.
  • After completing the P2R program, many more rides and trips will open up to the participant, as these often include a road component.
In Path 2 Road we will teach the following skills:
Riding safely in pairs, gear changing, climbing hills, riding out of the seat, cadence, cycling in cleats (optional), descending hills, rotating the leader, looking over your shoulder, riding a paceline and cornering.
The groups will be a maximum of 12 riders, preferably 8 riders, per accredited coach.  Maximum 3 groups on any event/session.
As a Saddle or Wheelie member, you are eligible to join the Path 2 Road program.
As a member of Path 2 Road, you can:  
  • Be part of a mid year cycling weekend away in June to either Bass or Surf Coast (tbc)
  • Take part in the LBOYB annual challenge ride in October each year.
  • Enjoy a 2 night country weekend away in November
  • Attend cycling – health related sessions eg nutrition.

Cost for the P2R program is $85 for members and $200 for non-members

Path 2 Road may not be your idea of cycling; no problems.  There will still be plenty of Social and Melbourne path rides on offer to you.
