We caught up with Melanie Fineberg (right) from VicHealth and Tina McCarthy of Wheel Women Cycling about the — This Girl Can Women’s Group.

Tune in to find out:

  • Why more women are taking up cycling as a way of getting – and staying – active
  • How the 2020 Swisse People’s Ride 35km is perfectly suited to beginners or those returning to riding
  • What inspired Tina’s cycling journey and how Wheel Women started
  • The barriers many women experience when it comes to exercise and how This Girl Can Vic is helping
  • Plus, much more.


To join the This Girl Can Women’s Group, register for the 2020 Swisse People’s Ride. You will be prompted to join the Group during the registration process.

As part of the Group you are invited to attend FREE skills and training ride sessions in Geelong with Wheel Women coaches Tina and Natasha.
