Whether a club ride or organizing a Century, we pride ourselves on practicing what we preach, Safe Cycling. By using and reinforcing bike safety skills on all our bike rides, confidence is built and stresses are reduced making it easy to enjoy the ride.

Kids Gearing Up and Individual Safe Cycling training options are in June, Safe Cycling clinics are scheduled for July, and Tour de Belle Vin is in September.
WWCycling Club bike rides begin in May
Open to Men & Women, the WWCycling Club offers on-road and off-road cycling adventures. Our core rides are Monday's women-only ride & Wednesday's co-ed rides from May thru September. In June, we have an annual overnight ride, averaging 65-75 miles per day. This year we have some new coffee rides planned. I'm really looking forward to those.
Wisconsin Women Cycling was founded in 2014 to organize the first women's century bike ride in Wisconsin. We've grown to three (3) century rides and several types of clinics. An avid cyclist herself, Cindy Petted is the founder of Wisconsin Women Cycling. She's also an LCI, Cycling Savey, & Safe Cycling Instructor and a Rotary International Cycling To Serve Fellow. On top of countless hours of volunteering and 14 years of corporate event planning experience, Cindy has been a ride director sanctioned under USA Cycling since 2015.
For 2021, we'll have a few clinics and the Tour de Belle Vin is going to happen on 9/18 (cross your fingers). Though we're planning the 2022 Women Century & Holy Hill Hundo rides, we had to cancel them again this year.
I've been riding bikes my entire life. As a kid, I remember riding deer trials to meet up with friends at the Moon Crater on my Stingray (this was before the BMX or MTB). My first road bike was a Schwinn Varsity. Chris Kegel would often tell the story of how I would lead the paceline on beat-down rides riding that tank. In the late 70's, I was their first female mechanic, then gradually moved into sales. During that time I raced track for Wheel & Sprocket... and I still have my jersey! Between experiences like those and meeting so many great people, the love for biking was set in my bones.
With racing long behind me, biking was always my go-to sport but I often found myself riding alone. When I did meet other women they had the same story. So, I started Wisconsin Women Cycling to put on the first women's century ride in Wisconsin to help women meet other women cyclists.
A serious cycling accident in 2017 ignited my passion to teach safe cycling skills to as many individuals as possible. So we shifted gears slightly and used our LCI & Cycling Savvy training to add Safe Cycling Clinics into the schedule.
I love positive change and I love helping others, male or female, build confidence, set obtainable goals, and enjoy cycling.
I have to say, with all these cancelations at times I find it refreshing to have extra "me-time" on and off the bike. But I miss my friends, the riders, and the stories we share. This too will change for the better.
Be Smart. Be Safe. Have Fun!
