Pretty Pedal – Weekly group and weekend rides in Atlantic Seaboard and Southern Suburbs.

Thank you for your interest!

We are excited to see more ladies on bikes! But we all know that riding alone is just unfortunately not an option. That’s why we’ve launched Pretty Pedal.

In addition to the safety of riding in a group, we will help you gain confidence, increase fitness, skill up on the road and off road and – naturally – make new cycling friends.

The payment options are:

  • R200 per Ride.
  • R190 per Ride if you pay for 10. Which should be used within 3 months.
  • R1900 for 10 Rides or
  • Monthly unlimited Rides per schedule R690.

BreakAwayRides Calendar 2018 | Weekly Ladies Ride – Skills and Fitness Term 2 (10 Apr – 22 Jun)

Kate Slegrova in partnership with BreakAwayRides | Our Weekly Ladies Rides are meant to improve your fitness and skills on the bike. This is not a skills workshop but a training ride with the focus on skills application and fitness build up. Every training session is different but typically we include 15 minutes skills drills to repeat techniques and 85 minutes riding time in the trails to practice difficult sections and apply newly learned techniques. We give you lots of skills tips during the ride and practice everything you struggle with to transform you into a confident and skilled rider.

After having worked in fitness for 10-years, coaching cyclists for 5 years and cycling competitively for 10-years, I have developed a strength and core training programme that will help you get stronger on a bike. Many athletes underestimate strength training but it can really help your performance as well as general well-being. The best time to start with strength training is during your off season and/or winter but you can also start while you’re racing. I can adjust the program to your own needs


  • Having a strong core is important for cycling but also for a healthy life.
  • A strong core and upper body helps you maintain correct posture on and off the bike.
  • It keeps your lower back and neck pain-free.
  • Prevention of osteoporosis.
  • Speeds up your metabolism and helps greatly with weight loss.
  • Strength training increases your power on the bike.

It also balances other muscles that you don’t use on the bike as much.

Helps to prevent injuries.
