With Maria Costello MBE
We recently held out first Ladies only bike track day of 2014 running on Stowe circuit. The day was blessed with perfect weather as the ladies began arriving for registration. Lots of happy, yet nervous faces were soon put at ease by host Maria Costello and our Silverstone riding instructors. After a welcome and safety briefing, the track riding got underway under the watchful eye of Maria and the instructors.
By lunch time all earlier nerves had quickly disappeared and were replaced with smiles and enquiring minds. Maria made her way around many of the ladies on the day to offer riding advice and encouragement.
“I was so pleased to see so many smiling faces throughout the day that only grew bigger as their riding improved – I know there are many more women out there who can benefit from coming on one of these days” said Maria Costello MBE
The day ended with certificate presentations and most improved rider award for each group.
One of the ladies at the track day, Pauline Rushton, made the following comment about the day: “Having attended track days before what a breath of fresh air this event was; well organised with good directions and information prior to the event, a safety briefing that I actually got to hear and a warm welcome from both Maria and her team along with a genuine interest in training on the day. It is clear Maria is truly inspired putting her personal time into talking to those who attended, ensuring that it was a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere and taking to the track to watch and give feedback. A fantastic role model and I would encourage any women out there who want to give this a go to forget those nerves and go for it as you’ll be smiling all the way back home”
The next Ladies day with Maria Costello is on the 9th September and is suitable for all levels of road riders and those who are thinking of taking the plunge into track days. Book onlineor call 0844 3728 329.comments powered by Disqus
