For the first time in Bahrain an all-girl cycling group glides across the Kingdom
Forget about Lamborghinis, Ferraris and Maseratis, bicycles are the latest trend.
Cycling Bees, a grouping of women cyclists, who aim to explore a new world on their bicycles, have begun to conquer roads of Bahrain.
“Cycling is not a men’s terrain. Even women have proved their success,” said Sarah Alsammak, founder of Cycling Bees.
“Cycling Bees started when I and my friend Dana were training for Ironman Bahrain and started to take of pictures and videos while cycling. Girls started writing back to us to join our rides and thus the group.” “The purpose of this group is to empower women to ride. We offer bikeability courses even for complete beginners. We as cycling bees ride everywhere in Bahrain not only in Zallaq,” she added.
The group takes special rides every week across the Kingdom.
“All members are committed riders. Every week we are now between 23 and 27 riders ready to hit roads.”
Cycling Bees is the only female riding group with female leaders and the first to have escort car behind them on every ride. The car is there for any girl who might want to take a rest and for the safety of the group.
Cycling Bees Home is the first of its kind in the region and is offering a new concept for the cyclists to hang out.
The home will have a common area where they can relax, coffee, turbo sessions, healthy live cooking and kids area for the little ones.
