2024 Tripleshot Women's Clinic Registration Now Open!


Tripleshot Women’s Cycling Clinics are run by women, for women, in Victoria, BC. They are for women with little or no previous group road riding experience interested in learning the skills and techniques needed for safe group riding and for those already comfortably riding in groups but want to become faster and more skillful. Now in our 13th year, Tripleshot Women's Cycling Clinic is excited to provide both clinic levels (beginner and intermediate) simultaneously.


Register early for the early-bird special price and to ensure your spot!

  • April 16th - June 4th

  • 8 sessions (7 on-bike)

  • Tuesdays from 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


For both clinic levels, road or cyclocross bikes with drop bars are required. We cannot allow e-bikes or flat handlebar bikes in the clinic because they are not conducive to safe group riding. This is what a bike with drop bars looks like:

If you're uncertain whether or not you have the right kind of bike, please send us a photo of your bike at tripleshotclinic@gmail.com and we'd be happy to help.


The first session is off-bike and will focus on basic bike maintenance. This is where you will meet your coaches and the other women in your group. Seven on-the-bike skills sessions follow, held at various locations around the city from Beacon Hill Park to longer group rides to be determined by the coaches. The clinic will run rain or shine; only hurricane-like winds will stop us. We won't be able to offer make-up sessions in the unlikely event conditions are not appropriate for riding.


During registration, you will answer questions about your riding skills and comfort. We will use your answers to help us determine which group to put you in, and we will adjust groups as necessary up to the end of the first on-the-bike session. Some groups provide skills and training sessions to get you more confident and comfortable on your bike and help you learn the skills needed for group rides. Other groups will work from the fundamental skills and teach techniques to make you more skillful, efficient and faster cyclists to enable you to join more challenging group rides.


The Skills

  • Below are some skills that we will introduce and things we will practice, depending on which group you are in:

    • bike handling;

    • safety drills;

    • group riding techniques (drafting and pacelines);

    • cornering;

    • how to ride hills better (climbing and descending);

    • basic bike maintenance;

    • group rides; and

    • team time trial practice.


Wrap-up Party

  • The final Tuesday is a wrap-up cycling event for both clinic levels, followed by a social with food and beverages. This event is sponsored by Broad Street Cycles and will begin and end at the bike shop. (www.broadstcycles.ca).


Clinic Cost

  • Early bird special: $150 until March 30th, $170 after. Registration cost includes online processing fees but not the required Cycling BC membership. This membership is required for insurance purposes.

  • Limited subsidies are available. For more information, please contact tripleshotclinic@gmail.com.


Come meet like-minded women, improve your skills, get more comfortable riding in groups and have fun!


We're excited to see you then!
