About a year ago I went on an after work bike trip in Brussels organised by the cycling label Rapha and the cycling shop Kring. Leading lady behind the collaboration was the enthusiastic Julie Borgers. Last week, I bumped into Julie again during a cycling shoot of Het Nieuwsblad in which we both were invited to pose.
Julie told me about the evolution the Rapha x Kring rides had made, and it immediately caught my attention. I felt like it is really something to share with my fellow cycling women!
Julie's main mission is to get women on a bike. How? Well, she founded WMNride to encourage women to ride a bike and to support female riders to improve performances at their own level. It's not a club, it's a community. A network of likeminded ladies who inspire each other. They work in partnership with high-end brands and experts to make your rides more comfortable.

- did you already try one of our weekend or afterwork rides? Whereas longer weekend rides may require some basic riding experience, our afterwork programme aims at bringing cyclists of all levels together on a shorter distance of 50km. For some this is a challenge, for others a social recovery ride! . Check the full programme and register your interest for a discovery ride at WMNride.com/rides

WMNride organizes rides from cycling hotspots in different regions. They have classy clubhouses for monthly rides and search for sweet suffer spots for occasional events. The clubhouses are high-end cycling stores or cafés with bike service. Each clubhouse hosts at least one social ride per month.
Riders gather for a coffee/tea before leaving and have access to premium deals on selected products and services. From each of our clubhouses, we offer a great variety of routes to WMNride members.
