Those ladies are back and they are waiting to show you how it's going down out there.. Adventure Syndicate are teaming up, once again with Girona Cycling and John Hampshire Coaching, to get you prepared for your two wheeled adventures.
I joined them in January 2017, for an absolute eye opener, into the world of women's cycling, that I had really underestimated and had very little idea about. The women on the camp were all a variety of ages and experience, but their common love of cycling was already taking them all over the globe to take on some really tough races and courses.
I felt empowered and inspired when I returned from the camp. It has really helped me tackle so many other events and issues over the year. The confidence boost it gave me for persisting through the tough days, was phenomenal, so its with supreme shame that its taken me 11 months to complete the video I set out to produce for them.
My earlier post can be seen here but really there's nothing like taking part in it yourself. The group will be meeting from the 30th January to 6th February 2018, for a week of Workshops to include:
- Planning and navigating your adventures
- Bike mechanics to keep you moving
- Kit and equipment for adventuring by bike
- Planning your own training
- Strength and Conditioning

The Adventure Syndicate is a collective of extraordinary cyclists who aim to challenge what we all think we are capable of, through a mixture of inspirational talks, films and articles, and practical, hands-on assistance. Directors Lee Craigie and Emily Chappell will be available throughout the camp, sharing their knowledge and experience, joining guests on their rides, running evening workshops to help guests tackle some of the less familiar aspects of bikepacking, long-distance and self-supported travel.
The Adventure Syndicate is a not-for-profit social enterprise. Any profit generated from our activities goes directly to the delivery of our social aims: to inspire, encourage and enable others (but especially woman and girls) to feel capable of more.
