Women's Ride Mission
1. Provide a safe, supportive space for those who have been underserved in the cycling community to develop their skills without judgement.
2. Encourage diversity and inclusivity within the WRCC and the surrounding cycling community.
3. Cater to a majority of skill levels in order to promote growth as cyclists learn to safely ride with others.
4. Empower cyclists in their abilities and knowledge of the sport and their equipment.
Mondays at 6 pm from May 23rd through September 12th
- C to C+ group riding between 25-30 miles
- D to D+ group riding between 20-25 miles
- F to E group riding between 10-20 miles
All three groups leave from Celery Bog Nature Area, 1620 Lindberg Rd, West Lafayette, IN, at 6:00pm, and we return at the same location often meeting at a local establishment nearby for some additional comradery and sustenance after our respective rides in an outdoor setting.
Please note that rides on Memorial day, Fourth of July, and Labor day will NOT be held so individuals can spend time with friends and family. There will likely be WRCC rides hosted on this day that we encourage our riders to join!

The Wabash River Cycling Club Women’s Ride began in 2016 as an idea between Laura Furey and Pat Boling to “just get more women out riding” in the community. Monday night rides starting from Hodson’s Bay Company evolved into the ride of today which requires not just one, but four, ride leaders to meet the demands of the women in the community.
Over the years this ride has grown into a contingency of strong and independent women who attend our rides for a variety of reasons. Some join for companionship, some for the challenge, and others for building confidence in a judgement-free environment. Despite their original motivation for coming out to ride, they all leave with a renewed sense of community and solidarity.
